The Good Mayor
Every day the mayor of the fictional town of Dot, stops off at the local café on his way to work, drinks his Viennese coffee with extra figs, leaves a bag of sweets for the owner, and goes to wait in his office for the arrival of his glorious secretary Agathe. He has worshipped Agathe from afar for years but she has always been out of reach. However, a family tragedy has changed things in Agathe's home and a chance occurrence one day leads her to confide in Tibo.
There is delicious writing in this heart-warming story of blossoming love, set against the unpromising
background of local government in a forgotten part of the Baltic.
