About this item
As this sentimental but deeply sincere fiction debut opens, Cornelia, a 31-year-old café manager, is waiting for her life to change. At first, she thinks she's found all her answers in Martin, who seems to have stepped off the screen from one of her favorite romantic classic films into the café. Meanwhile, Clare, a sensitive, precocious 11-year-old who barely sees her father since the divorce, watches in sadness and desperation as mental illness slowly creeps over her beautiful, vivid mother. When Cornelia and Clare finally meet, Cornelia realizes that it wasn't Martin she was waiting for.
