The Rag Doll Cafe
Winter is here, but something is about to hit Lighthouse Bay harder than any summer storm! Anton Rubinski has just left town. The door it seems has closed on a summer friendship forged over a bottle that granted he and his friends’ every wish come true. Now with no job, no friends and no reason to stay, he heads south on the highway surfing at any beach he finds.

Pastor Mike Gantry may have just wished his Church away. A month after finding a bottle washed up on the shores of Lighthouse Bay, almost every wish he had made for the members of his ailing congregation has come true. Only he never pictured his wish to retire to result in the doors of his small Church having to close for the final time. So what happens when a dread-locked surfer arrives in Lighthouse Bay on the morning of the final Church service? When Pastor Mike learns that Anton was the last person to have found the bottle, is it an answer to prayer? Or does it go down like a bad smell in Church? This truly odd couple are about to learn that when one door closes, another always opens. And you never, ever judge a book by its cover. Welcome to The Rag Doll Cafe, where the coffee is hot, the weather is not, and the conversation is not what you expected.
