Summary

"Listeners will be transported to the small Southern town of Wicklow by the drawls and laid-back pacing of the narrators.... This is a beautiful story of family, love, and forgiveness." (AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner)

Heather Webber's Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe is a captivating blend of magical realism, heartwarming romance, and small-town Southern charm. 

Nestled in the mountain shadows of Alabama lies the little town of Wicklow. It is here that Anna Kate has returned to bury her beloved Granny Zee, owner of the Blackbird Café. 

It was supposed to be a quick trip to close the café and settle her grandmother’s estate, but despite her best intentions to avoid forming ties or even getting to know her father’s side of the family, Anna Kate finds herself inexplicably drawn to the quirky Southern town her mother ran away from so many years ago, and the mysterious blackbird pie everybody can’t stop talking about. 

As the truth about her past slowly becomes clear, Anna Kate will need to decide if this lone blackbird will finally be able to take her broken wings and fly.

Relaxing, interesting, sweet.

Very enjoyable book, interesting subject, nothing to dread or get upset about. Fabulous readers. I’ll buy other titles from this author.. I’m tired of murders, kidnappings, and all kinds of violence in my audiobooks. This one is like a balm, without getting cloying on romance, or boring on nothing happening. I sincerely recommend it,

Solid 3 Star

Being a southerner myself I appreciated the feel of this story. The female narrators did an excellent job on the southern twang and made it feel very authentic. The story however I feel like was just predictable. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but I kept waiting on something to happen, but it didn’t really. The story just continued on in the same “tone”. I was really hoping for an epilogue too. I didn’t hate it but was left just feeling meh.

Thoroughly Enjoyed It

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. I loved the story line. The reason for the four stars under performance is I could have done without the narratorization of the small child, it got annoying after a while and really served no purpose. Other than that it was great read

Warm fuzzies!

Every now and then it just feels good to read (or listen to) a book that feels like a warm, cozy blanket...I loved the characters and the lessons on life, happiness and forgiveness woven through the story. Performance was great and really brought the characters to life!
