Leaving A Legacy
Tales From The Café by Toshikazu Kawaguchi is a delightful contemporary novel and the second book in the Before The Coffee Gets Cold series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I recommend reading book one first.
Once more the reader returns to a small coffee shop in Tokyo. It is a place suspended in time where hearts can be changed by a single visit.
We learn that love and relationships are what is really important. We cannot change the past but by confronting the past, we can have mindset changes that will affect our present and future. We can have hope again.
What legacy will you leave? We learn that the most valuable legacy that you can leave is a legacy of love.
All the characters were well drawn and likable.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my visits to the small Tokyo coffee shop and I hope there will be many more books to continue the tales.
