Odds of saving marriage - slim. Farming expertise - patchy. Chances that it'll all be okay in the end - actually pretty good ... I wasn't enjoying the afternoon of 23 February even before I learnt that my husband was having an affair. The news of Jenny's husband's infidelity come...s as a nasty shock to the part-time building control officer and full-time mother - even though, to her surprise and embarrassment, her first reaction is relief rather than anguish. What really hurts is her children's unhappiness at the break-up, and the growing realisation that, alone, she may lose the family farm. This is the story of the year after Jenny's old life falls apart; of family and farming, pet lambs and geriatric dogs, choko-bearing tenants and Springsteen-esque neighbours. And of getting a second chance at happiness. PRAISE FOR DANIELLE HAWKINS 'Author Danielle Hawkins ... has a talent for witty and convincing dialogue and this, in particular, gives The Pretty Delicious Cafe verve and humour. She's also a skilled sculptor of characters' Otago Daily Times 'Danielle Hawkins' quirky humour and easy style make [The Pretty Delicious Cafe] a great summer read' Dominion Post 'Utterly delectable with a twist of spice and a touch of zest!'
