Coffee and Cake with Erica James 9th May 2PM Linghams

9 May @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Erica James will be joining us to share some coffee and cake, and chat all about ‘An Ideal Husband.’

Our coffee and cake events are held in our cafe, seated at tables for a more intimate feel.

Tickets are £28. They include a hardback copy of ‘An Ideal Husband’, a selection of freshly baked cakes and a hot drink.

We suggest you arrive at 2pm for a 2:30 start. This will give us time to get everyone seated with their cakes and drink before the event begins.

There will be a table plan for this event, so do let us know if you want to be seated next to a friend on a separate booking! If you book multiple tickets, we will seat you together.

Please let us know of any allergies or dietary needs in advance!

About ‘An Ideal Husband’

After 30 years of marriage, and a wonderful family Christmas, Louisa is stunned when husband Kip asks for a divorce on Boxing Day. He’d never seemed unhappy – and they’ve raised three children together.

For months, Kip has been secretly seeing a younger woman – and if that wasn’t bad enough – it’s the woman who broke their youngest son’s heart. Now Kip is moving out and embarking on a new life with Zoe, and Louisa is left to pick up
the pieces. Their beloved family home, Charity Cottage, is up for sale, and tensions are running high.
Yet, despite the betrayal and anger, when Louisa lays eyes on what might be a unique and welcoming new home, she feels a first glimmer of hope that life might be taking a turn for the better.
And while Louisa is making exciting plans, Kip finds himself facing challenges of his own and begins to learn that living the dream may not be as simple as he thought…
