Alice Rose is a foundling, discovered on the Yorkshire moors above Haworth as a baby. Adopted but then later rejected again by a horrid step-mother, Alice struggles to find a place where she belongs. Only baking – the scent of cinnamon and citrus and the feel of butter and flour between her fingers – brings a comforting sense of home.
So it seems natural that when she finally decides to return to Haworth, Alice turns to baking again, taking over a run-down little teashop and working to set up an afternoon tea emporium.
Luckily she soon makes friends, including a Grecian god-like neighbour, who help her both set up home and try to solve the mystery of who she is. There are one or two last twists in the dark fairytale of Alice’s life to come . . . but can she find her happily ever after?
I have a collection of Trisha’s books and I totally adore them. This book I found very intriguing and very captivating which Trisha’s books normally are. The story is full of mystery, friendship, hope and there is romance added in to to make it a beautifully told tale. I loved the idea of a teashop with a bit of a difference I would of certainly gone there. There are also some lovely recipes at the back that are featured in the story. I loved it.
