Express Cafe and Other Ramblings by Heather Crouse is a collection of stories dealing with human emotions and the path life takes. All the stories are different from one another but the theme is the same. Some of them are inspiring and some are ones with a motivational message. Though the stories and characters differ, they link to the same theme. The stories are simple and short, and easy to read. Readers will relate to this kind of writing.
There are a few poems as well, an addition which I found unique and appealing. It breaks the prose and gives a different voice to the book. It also amplifies the motivational tone of the book. The poem 'Taking A Moment' where the author speaks about being taken to the core of one's being is very inspiring and motivating.
