On My Wishlist: The Color of Tea



On My Wishlist hosted by Workaday Reads


On My Wishlist is a new meme I will be participating from time to time. It used to be hosted by Book Chick City, then Cosy Books, and now it is being passed on to Sarah at Workaday Reads.  I'm really excited about this. It sounds like a great way to share what I'm interested in lately, especially those books which are really tempting me at the moment, and to discuss with others.

The past few weeks I have been wishing for this book:

The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe

Published by Simon & Schuster Canada, 2012

An exciting debut novel set in the exotic, bustling streets of coastal China—a woman whose life is restored when she opens a small cafĂ© and gains the courage to trust what’s in her heart.

Lost among the mayhem that defines Macau, Grace’s life is slowly unraveling. Her marriage to Pete is fraying and her dreams of having a family seem hopeless.

With the heralding of a new year she resolves to do something bold. Something her impetuous Mama might do. In this pocket of China, filled with casinos and yum cha restaurants, she opens her own small cafe called Lillian’s. This sanctuary of macarons and tea becomes a place where the women of Macau come together, bridging cultural divides, to share in each other’s triumphs and pain. But Grace’s immersion in the cafe takes its toll on her marriage, and when things start to crumble, her beloved Lillian’s suddenly feels like a burden rather than an escape.

The recipe for disaster is complete when Pete does the unthinkable.

Infused with the heady aromas of Macau and peppered with delectable characters, The Color of Tea is a mouth-watering journey of the senses as Grace rediscovers what it is to love, to live with hope, and embrace real happiness.
