Teaser Tuesday #TuesdayBookBlog

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books And A Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two or three “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

tea-rose

I am currently reading The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly which appealed to me because the first half is set in London in 1888 where an Irish family struggle to live working as a docker, laundress and a tea packer. For Fiona her life goes from bad to worse until circumstances take her to New York.

Fiona stared at the stark wooden markers sticking out of the snow dusted ground.  On the left, her father’s, already weathered by the elements.  Next to his, her mother’s and the baby’s, just starting to darken.  And a brand new one, the wooden cross still pale.

And then he saw them.  Tea roses.  Hundreds and hundreds of them.  The entire backyard was full of them, sprawling over walls and pathways, basking and preening in the sunshine.

The Tea Rose is the first book of a series available from Amazon UK or Amazon US
