The Tea Rose Jennifer Donnelly.
The scent of Indian tea leaves – black, crisp, and malty – was intoxicating. It floated out of Oliver’s, a six-story wharf on the Thames’s north bank, and wafted down the Old Stairs, a flight of stone steps that led from Wapping’s winding, cobbled High Street to the river’s edge. The tea’s perfume overpowered the other smells of the docks – the sour stench of the mud bank, the salty tang of the river, and the warm, mingled scents of cinnamon, pepper, and nutmeg drifting out of the spice wharves. Fiona Finnegan closed her eyes and inhaled deeply. Assam, she said to herself.
Kate mashed the tea and sat down. Rose Bristow and Kate Finnegan had grown up together on the same dreary close off Tilley Street in Whitechapel, and now lived only doors down from each other on Montague Street. Paddy said the blessing and the family began to eat. She regarded her brood and smiled. From stories her mam had told her, Fiona knew they’d been inseparable as girls, always giggling and whispering together, and even now, as married women, easily fell back into their old ways.

Ms Donnelly has created characters that you instantly can identify with and fall in love with. Read the whole series (3 books) nonstop. This is the kind of book of characters that you are still thinking of weeks and years later. I can always hope Ms Donnelly will continue the story she created with yet another book, but know that after all these years it won't happen.
Ssshh," he said, quieting her protests with kisses. Already hard again, he slipped inside her. He moved slowly, luxuriously, with no urgency this time,. as if he had a hundred years to kiss her and touch her and be inside of her. He kissed her mouth, then whispered to her how beautiful she was. He cupped her breasts and used his teeth and lips on them, sucking them, flicking his tongue over them. Then he put his hand under the small of her back.
Authentic and moving, The Tea Rose is an unforgettable novel-one certain to take its place beside such enduring epics as A Woman of Substance, The Thornbirds, and The Shell Seekers. Praise for this book. A splendid, heartwarming, novel of pain, struggle, decency, triumph. Similar books by other authors.
