Prepare to fall in love with scrappy, poor, beautiful Fiona Finnegan, a young East London woman full of dreams of starting her own shop with her childhood sweetheart, Joe Bristow. But those dreams are dramatically shattered, and Fiona flees, alone, to New York. There, she works hard, builds a fortune, and builds a family of friends along the way – but she never forgets Joe, and after ten years, she travels back to London to see what has become of him. A sweeping, gripping work of historical fiction, Jennifer Donnelly’s The Tea Rose will keep you reading long past bedtime.
