    3.5 stars This book is not at all what I expected I thought it was historical fiction, but there s too much crazy melodrama for it to be that Then I thought it was a historical romance, but it s far too detailed and well done for that, too So the book is either extremely campy historical fiction or really, really excellent historical romance But either way, it s loads and loads of fun.A few things you should know about me that factor into why I enjoyed this book so much I am picky about my tea I have a lot of tea accessories and I love the ritual of going to tea and eating elegant little sandwiches I have a weakness for gorgeous gowns and ladies in big hats I read lots of catalogues and fashion magazines I own vintage gloves and handkerchiefs I dart around flea markets looking for pretty brooches I get Victorian Papers catalogue I am somewhat obsessed with food I read food blogs and tweets and magazines and cookbooks I have a whole cupboard devoted to baking materials.That part of me, the girly romantic part who loves pretty fans and peonies and nesting, is the one who loves this book The author writes wonderful descriptions that bring up the exotic scent of tea wafting up from a tin, the heartiness and comfort of a good hot meat pie, and the bustling activity on the teeming streets of Londo...

    A wonderful book so vividly described one felt you were there among the many heartwarming and equally evil characters Set in the 1800 s it takes you on an extraordinary journey you never want to end Quite simply brilliant.

    This book has faults The story was pretty far fetched at times but I suppose in kind of an endearing fairy tale way which is funny, since a great deal of the book is extremely horrible and depressing , and the main character didn t really have any flaws.Well, I take that back Fiona, the main character, was in love with Joe That is a fault, in my eyes They grew up together, were in love, and had big plans to get rich together Well, through a horrible chain of events, they ended up on opposite continents I m not saying that what happened was really Joe s fault the whole thing was so pathetic, I was mad at him at first but really just ended up being sorry for him but I am not a member of Joe s fan club He is alright, I just think Fiona is better then him I forgave Donnelly for making Fiona so perfect because really, she earned it Bless her heart, she really got run through the mill in the story.Okaynow for the two main reasons I loved the book beyond all reason 1 Nicholas Soames He is officially one of my favorite characters of all time He DID have his flaws spoiled rich kid , but bless his heart, he did not live an easy life I fell in love with him, and so did Fiona in a friendly way Their close friendship and devotion to each other is one of the main reasons I forgive Fiona for being perfect I cannot say enough that I love this guy From the very second he walke...

    Once I got over da feckin Oirish accent t ing, I really got into this one What an epic tale I absolutely adored Fiona, her spirit, her independence, her outspoken nature, her love of her family 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. A tragic incident has horrible consequences for the McGowan family, especially Fiona.Spanning a number of years and two continents, it kept me on my toes Parts of the first half were quite heartbreaking The winter wind brought snowflakes with it We are not punished for our sins, but by them There was one part in and I wanted to catch someone and string him up by the balls Seriously I want a man who loves me.One who won t break my heart I know I am being a bit vague but you are sort of better off...

    I had a lot of hope for this after reading Donnelly s A Northen Light which I really liked and after learning that A Tea Rose was set in London at the time of the Jack the Ripper murders a very intriguing setting, I thought But I m sorry to say, I was terribly disappointed.The characters are all extremely stale Good hearted and good looking people who have unfortunately been born into the working class There are no flaws to make them human Nothing I could relate with Plus, the biggest fault of this book I think, is the unbelievability of it Main characters Fiona and Joe, lovers separated by a horrible scheme Fiona goes to New York, Joe stays in London , are dirt poor but somehow, in a very short time, they both become extraordinarily rich on their own wit and intuition Oh yes, it s completely believable that a factory worker and a costermonger in the late nineteenth century could BOTH rise up to the top of society i...

    The Tea Rose was a really good book, and I m so glad I persevered past the absolutely devastating first 200 300 odd pages It s one of those books that starts off with everything going so well that you know it s not going to last long I had a sense of foreboding, but the amount of tragedy and pain was really too much It just kept coming in wave after wave It wasn t just a bit dark or a bit tragic It was crushing, suffocating loss and pain That s going to stick with me for a while I m really proud of myself for pushing through it, because I usually hate reading books full of tragedy, and this was darker than I can usually tolerate.I m fairly certain I stuck with it partly because of the tea I love tea I drink it all day long And I love Victorian stories, and this one was refreshingly focused on industry and shops, and factories not something I ve seen very often since packaging and selling tea is not as glamorous as taking tea in the parlor The sense of place was very vivid, and it ke...

    The Tea Rose Jennifer Donnelly We re not punished for our sins, lad We re punished by them God didn t have to punish him he d created his own hell By himself and for himself I don t really know why I took so long to pick this book up I guess I felt intimidated by its size Also, having devoured A Northern Light I was afraid this one wouldn t be equally good Well, I can honestly say that I was captivated by its beautiful storyline So don t let the number of pages put you off.The Tea Rose tells the heartbreaking story of Fiona Finnigan who lives in the poor neighborhood of East End, London around the time of Jack the Ripper late 1880s After her family is destroyed by severe poverty and death Fiona flees London to start anew in New York Propelled by strong desire for life and revenge, she manages to rise from the ashes and become a successful tea trader But when the ghosts of her past return, she realizes it s time to confront her deadly enemies.The book contains a number of historical references which makes it all the interesting The mystery surrounding the ...

    I really like this book because it is a great story Fiona, our main character, goes through so much struggle and so many changes, and because she s such a lovely character you can t help but cheer for her She s stubborn, loyal and very intelligent and I quickly fell in love with her This goes for most of the characters in this book They were so easy to fall in love with while other characters were so easy to hate I do think that this book has its flaws It s very predictable and and contains a lot of the elements you can expect from a coming of age story I wasn t really surprised at any point not until the very last pages , but the truth is I didn t really mind that much I loved the way the story was going and I loved to read about Fiona and her changes till the end This is a very long book, but at no point did I feel like it was dragging too much or that any pages could have been taken out of the story I think the best part about The Tea Rose was the romance Jennifer Donnelly has created an intense relationship between Fiona and her beloved one and my eyes were glued to the pages whenever we hear about this romance The worst thing about this book was its predictability which didn t really enhance the reading experience Last but not least, I find it extremely funny how Jennifer Donnelly has ...
