Review

‘This is a most seductive novel. You’ll be charmed by the novels heroine – 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 researched and wonderfully rumbustious yarn – brilliantly told, great fun to read.’ Simon Winchester

‘Bold, brisk and beguiling, The Tea Rose is a splendid brew of a book.’ Sam Twining

'It's so much fun…This is London in the 1880s, the London of Charles Dickens and Edward Rutherford, 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

‘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
