Ida’s Place—Book Two: Revival (2014)

Idas Place Book 2 Revival by Todd Walton This the second volume of the four Ida’s Place novels set in and around Ida’s Place, a bakery café in the mythic coastal town of Big River in far northern California.

In Book One, Ida Kaminsky and her son Simon returned to Big River after a twelve-year absence to reunite with Ida’s childhood sweetheart Donald Covey, a fisherman turned carpenter.

Ida’s Place—Book Two: Revival brings back nearly all the delightful and intriguing characters introduced in Book One, including Ida, Donald, Simon and Maeve, Donald’s delightful Irish mother, Nazrun the sexy Turkish savant, Elena the exotic Lithuanian baker, Jenny the beguiling British waitress, the Romanian Gypsy sisters Mada, Livia and Anica, Eddie Ontiveros, farmer and strong man, his wife Ruth and daughter Louann, and Duyi, Jiahui, Joe, and Far Ling, owners of the cavernous old building wherein Ida’s Place resides.

To say more about Book Two would be a disservice to those wonderful people who purchased Book One and wrote to let us know how much they were looking forward to reading Book Two.

Handsome comb-bound copies of Ida’s Place—Book Two: Revival are available for dollars, each volume extravagantly signed and numbered by Todd.
