Chick Lit Café is passionate about books and the reading experience. Their goal is to provide readers with the very best hand picked fiction books written by remarkable and talented authors who have over-the-top captivating imaginations, outstanding writing abilities and unique stories to tell.
They also look for and recommend excellent nonfiction (including memoirs & biographies) books that will provide readers with a great read which they can be inspired by, surprised by and even mortified by – whatever readers are looking for. Self-help books that give knowledge and guidance are also some of our favorites.
With so many Indie and accomplished writers out there, how do you make yourself present online? It can be a very nerve racking and frustrating endeavor. For me it was about following through with my mother’s dream in getting her adoptive mother’s story told. By telling her story has inspired me to write. I hope to inspire those that may be thinking about writing a book to follow through with their dream. I hope to write another book. Thank you Chick Lit for your passion in helping Indie writer’s reach their potential in continuing to write!

At the end of World War II, a mother, desperate and alone, and with her heart breaking, hands her baby to strangers on a street corner. The baby was only five days old and was the author, Candace Webb-Henderson’s own mother. Never to see her family again, the baby is raised far away from the life she could have known.
One can’t imagine the pain and heartache the child must have experienced. Questions about her parents and their lives must have haunted her from the time she became aware of her history.
