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.

“Entertaining… memorable characters bring Prohibition-era Montana to life… Ms. Dallas has a good feeling for story, character,and dialogue.” (New York Times Book Review)
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.
Cynthia Darlow brought the characters alive in a very believable way.
absolutely, a real "page turner"...darlow is the best narrator, I love all her audios.
past recollections, memories tells it all. This story was funny, sad and wonderful!!!
I love listening to Cynthia Darlow, she brings the characters to life.
All depends on how you spend your time. I can listen and do other things around the house or yard, kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak.
Effa Commander and Whoopie bird. The era in which the book took place is a favorite of mine. I was born in the wrong era. The 40's and 50's would have been a great time to have raised a family.
No. I will have to give her a try.
Laugh, and feel sad, but not cry
I have one more book of hers to listen to and then I will have had them all.
