Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe made me wish I could travel to Wicklow and have a piece of pie, hear Ollie say "hihi" and stay late to see the blackbirds.

This isn't always a happy story, but it meanders towards a happy ending by showing us the light that shines in people (and also some of the darkness). It's like peering through a window in a southern town and watching people go about their daily lives. There's also a bit of romance thrown into the mix too for those who like a good romance.

This is a character-driven novel with a cast of characters that you won't soon forget. There is xcellent character development on all of the characters (even minor ones). All of the characters are delicately interwoven like a quilt to show us the true meaning of family and friends.
