Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sandra Dallas spins a moving, memorable yarn that transports listeners from rural Montana to 1940s Hollywood. Buster Midnight’s Cafe is a compelling story of longtime friends, a shared past, and an act of violence that shatters innocence forever.
May Anna Kovacks was discovered on the dustry streets of Butte, Montana and went on to become a Hollywood star. War, fame, marriage, love, and heartbreak came and went. What never changed was the bond she shared with her two best friends, Effa Commander and Whippy Bird. When scandal, murder, and betrayal made a legend of May Anna, only Effa and Whippy Bird could set the record straight.

Would you recommend Buster Midnight’s Cafe to your friends? Why or why not?

I really like Sandra Dallas because she tells her stories through the lives and experiences of women and does so by placing her story settings in the historical context of the United States. The theme throughout her books is about friendship ans bonding together. That said, I felt this was a very sad book in that she really put her characters through so much suffering and loss. This was not one of my favorites, but I still love Sandra Dallas.

What does Cynthia Darlow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Cynthia Darlow brought the characters alive in a very believable way.
