Overview

 

East London, 1888 - a city apart. A place of shadow and light where thieves, whores, and dreamers mingle, where children play in the cobbled streets by day and a killer stalks at night, where bright hopes meet the darkest truths. Here, by the whispering waters of the Thames, Fiona Finnegan, a worker in a tea factory, hopes to own a shop one day, together with her lifelong love, Joe Bristow, a costermonger's son. With nothing but their faith in each other to spur them on, Fiona and Joe struggle, save, and sacrifice to achieve their dreams.

But Fiona's life is shattered when the actions of a dark and brutal man take from her nearly everything-and everyone-she holds dear. Fearing her own death, she is forced to flee London for New York. There, her indomitable spirit propels her rise from a modest West Side shop-front to the top of Manhattan's tea trade. But Fiona's old ghosts do not rest quietly, and to silence them, she must venture back to the London of her childhood, where a deadly confrontation with her past becomes the key to her future.

 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“It's so much fun ...this is London in the 1880s, the London of Charles Dickens and Edward Rutherfurd, a teeming, messy place full of business, dirt and poverty. Once in New York, we trip from the tenements of the Lower East Side to elegant dining at Delmonico's, with hardly a paragraph to catch our breath...the atmosphere of both starring cities is created in satisfying detail. One can walk the streets and listen to the people chat in the company of Jennifer Donnelly, who has done her historical homework...she delivers.” —Washington Post

“Time seems to stand still when The Tea Rose comes to life.” —The Anniston Star

“When you start reading Jennifer Donnelly's The Tea Rose give yourself plenty of time because this is a most seductive novel. You will travel from the rough, often savage, back streets of London to the glossy sophistication of New York's Fifth Avenue. You'll be charmed by the novel's heroine, Fiona Finnegan-her intelligence, her courage, her great heart. Despite her suffering-a lost love, a tragic family-there are moments you will want to cheer. It's the kind of novel where the writing is so fluid you feel the author simply loves telling her story. This is a splendid heartwarming novel of pain, struggle, decency, triumph-and just what we need in these times.” —Frank McCourt

“I loved this vividly atmospheric and wonderfully rambunctious yarn-brilliantly told, great fun to read.” —Simon Winchester, author of The Professor and the Madman

“Bold, brisk, and beguiling. The Tea Rose is splendid brew of a book.” —Samuel H. G. Twining, LVO, OBE, director of Twinings Tea

“The Tea Rose is the kind of book that calls for a rainy day, a cozy chair, and a good, steaming cup of tea. It's strong and satisfying, with a taste that lingers in the memory.” —Paula Cohen, author of Gramercy Park

“In the tradition of Barbara Taylor Bradford...steeped in romance and authentic period detail, this exquisite melodrama will appeal to fans of epic historical fiction.” —Booklist

“The novel's lively plotting, big cast of warmly drawn characters and long-deferred romantic denouement make this a ripping yarn.” —Publishers Weekly

“Readers will relish this rags-to-riches romance.” —Library Journal

“A hard book to put down until the final page.” —Chattanooga Free Press

“Donnelly's tale pulls the reader into its emotional depths and refuses to let go. Fiona Finnegan is a remarkable heroine.” —Romantic Times Book Club, Top Pick
