Coffee In Manila - A Novel Written by A Concerned American

What began for Ryan Tipton as a journey into the heart of Maricel Arcamo, a woman he met online just six months ago, deepens considerably after he travels halfway around the world just to meet her. After spending one perfect week together, everything quickly crumbles one week later, after he informs his new girlfriend that he never went back to the States after all. This comes as a complete and total shock to her, because she actually saw him off at the airport last week. They even shared a tearful embrace as her family looked on, before he boarded his plane supposedly headed back to the US. But that simply wasn't the case. Instead, he remained in the Philippines another week to meet with two other Filipino women he'd also met on the same online dating site, both of whom were just as much in the dark about his secret betrayals as Maricel.

Full of utter remorse for lying to the woman he knew deep down inside he truly loved, Tipton finally places a frantic 3 a.m. call to a man he met just last week, Ernesto Angeles, owner of Agape Coffee and Pastry Shoppe. After losing a daughter to suicide twenty years ago, a senseless death brought about by nothing more than a broken heart, he and his wife, Gloria, eventually turned their pain and grief into action, and set out to do all they could to help prevent anymore of these senseless suicides from occurring in their city. Since that time, thousands of lives were forever changed, most of them mixed couples, prompting many to believe that God Himself had ordained this loving Filipino couple to become guardian angels for so many of His hurting and needy people. But in an establishment where love, forgiveness and redemption reign supreme, after what Ryan did to Maricel, was it possible for them to ever be added to the long list of satisfied customers, or were they already too far gone for reconciliation..
