Hope Was Here

Hope has been a waitress for as long as she can remember. She and her aunt Addy (a chef) are constantly moving from one restaurant or cafe to another. But this time is different. This time, Hope and Addy are moving into rural Wisconsin. Hope is not pleased whatsoever, as she is a city girl. But once the duo arrives at Welcome Stairways cafe, things change. Hope meets G.T., the owner of the cafe, who is dying of leukemia while running for mayor of the town against the evil Eli Millstone. Along the way, Hope and Addy find romance, fun, and heartbreak. Can G.T. win the elections? And will Hope be able to stay at Welcome Stairways for good? Joan Bauer, author of Rules of the Road, has served up a scrumptious novel that is sweet, sad, and savory.
