A Street Cafe Named Desire [currently out of print]
David has two aims in life, to have a relationship with Bridget and to open an arts café.
A short while after David's wife walks out on him, he joins a twenty-five-year school reunion. On meeting Bridget, he develops a teenagesque infatuation but there's a cartload of baggage to deal with - a demanding soon to be ex-wife; a deceased husband under suspicious circumstances; a tyrannical boss; unwelcome encounters with the police; and children resistant to the concept of 'step-parent'. And then there's the café. How can a well-paid accountant with two children to support chuck it all in to follow his dream?
