East London 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 h 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 flawsWell 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 storyOkaynow for the two main reasons I loved the book beyond all reason1 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 walked into the story I knew it was getting five stars I felt such an emotional connection to him I have never wanted to be friends with a character so much Ever He melted and then broke my heart2 The book made me feel Just a few words into Page 1 Donnelly put me into the storyshe just makes you feel like you are right there Once I was in she never let up I was a part of that story from beginning to end and that is a gift No matter what problems the plot might have you cannot ignore an author or a story that so fully captures you Her descriptions and words are gorgeous AlsoI cried like a baby at one point obviously I'm not going to tell you why but when you read the book then we'll talk I meanI put the book down for a few minutes and just sobbed A book hasn't done that to me inI don't know how long I felt silly but I couldn't help it The story broke my heartThere was a happy ending though no worries Don't let my crying put you offThis is a great story it is a long onebut I really think it is worth the time It in many ways isn't very originalbut there are plenty of twists you won't see coming It is a strange combination of Gaskell's North and South Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo and heckI'll even through in the musical Rent Ha If that isn't an intriguing combination I don't know what is

mobi The Tea Rose

The Tea RoseEr 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 The Tea PDFEPUBtheir dreamsBut 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 s 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 tolerateI'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 kept me reading along with the hope that such tragedy couldn't continue for 700 pages without reprieveI was totally ready to walk away if Part 2 didn't start turning things around But luckily it did From that point on even though there are still sad parts the overall tone is hopeful and things start to go right I was finally able to settle down into an enjoyable historical tale with regular ups and downs The strength of love and friendships and resilience of spirit began to shine through and the memory of those will stick with me for a while too Then for the last part of the book I suddenly found myself glued to the pages I couldn't read fast enough to see how everything would play out I wasn't completely sure I could trust everything to work out how I wanted it to but in the end all of the resolutions were so completely satisfying I can't believe I'm saying it but it was worth it to persevere What a roller coaster ride
