A Cafe For Authors and Avid Readers
Leila Payson, a Miami high school teacher, and her friends are back with more adventures in Racing The Sun, a sequel to Miami Morning. Leila is at a midpoint in her life. Her relationship with Mark, the attractive “man with a book” evolves. With him she plans to start a new group bringing together people of varying abilities. She meets Doug, a paraplegic and former student, who wants to design and build better wheelchairs. With her help he prepares for a wheelchair race. Should she change careers? And then she discovers both her mother and father have secret lives. She is surrounded by the complexities of modern life: what is real, true, worthwhile?
Leila’s friend Dov, an event planner from South Beach, goes to Cuba in search of his new love, Nìco, the hunky bird guide. Cran, the father of Leila’s friend Charles, and husband of the erstwhile Berry, loves his vintage cars. After a racing accident, his life takes a different course.
Leila and Mark return to Africa, where they have each worked before. What does she learn about love here? In South Africa, she visits Dr. Anna Larssen and Baruti, two people whose work and friendship have greatly influenced her life. And will she at long last - as Baruti wished - see the wild flamingos?
