Judy Dosh's Coffee Break
This is officially the second book in the Judy Dosh series. But it is also very much a stand-alone novel in its own right. And can be read as such. It is a book full of discoveries.
Father Ed who has left the church, is discovering the joys of sex, and getting on with the broader community in Perth Western Australia in the 21st-century.
Judy makes new discoveries of her own, as she leaves her activist life behind and tries to become a good mother and make her marriage work.
We meet a broad group of young people in Perth, trying to understand the complications of living in the 21st-century, making the most of the freedoms and opportunities it offers, but struggling to come to terms with the complicated world that relationships present.
Once again as Father Ed, one of the characters in the book, said about a play he saw, "it makes you laugh, but it also makes you think".
