The characters in this story included a grumpy but kind-hearted property developer called Shaun; a roofer called Will whose haughty, graspingly cold wife Nicole left him when their business failed; a bereaved `wife' called Carla who discovered her `husband' Martin was a bigamist when, at his funeral his first wife appeared; a talented and hard-working teenager called Ryan, who lived in a chaotic and dysfunctional family but who was determined to make good; a mother called Molly whose bullying son Gram and wife Sherry were trying to move her from her lovely home and into care; a terminally ill man looking to rectify his past mistakes and find forgiveness, even though his mistakes broke the heart of a loved one; and finally a lonely retired doctor seeking company and friendship in a newly opened corner teashop. This teashop will become their lifeline.
When Leni opens her dream teashop these lonely and unhappy individuals all gravitate to her specially created cakes, enjoying convivial chatter, speciality teas and beautifully created menus. Friendships are seeded, they grow and flourish, friendships that will strengthen and last a lifetime. Gradually all of these lonely and wronged characters find the strength to rebuild their lives and with a little sprinkling of magic move on to a new fuller, happier life.
Milly Johnson has a real gift for story telling and has once again written an absorbing and charming novel about love, loss, recovery and finally redemption. I really enjoyed reading it.
I found it very hard to put down and was thinking of the characters in between readings.
This is definitely one of my favourite Milly Johnson books, she has amazing, fantastically developed characters, great storyline, a very thought provoking book that's highly entertaining! I feel sad that I finished reading it and I know I'll be thinking about the characters in this book for a long time. :-)
Please write a new book soon Milly! <3
Carla starts a new life unexpectedly, due to a sudden death and discovery; a housewife who needs a job, new home and perhaps a little luck.
Leni is the owner of the Teashop. She is always smiling and dressed in bright colours. She bakes delicious cakes, and keeps the display cabinets topped up with new and exciting stationary.
Molly is divorced, and lives in a house in the grounds of her sister Margaret and brother-in-law Bernard's home. Molly had one true love who she can never forget: Harvey, who left her over 20 years ago. Molly thinks she is getting forgetful, and her son and daughter-in-law are intent on putting her in a home called, 'Autumn Grange'.
Mr Singh is a widow, smartly dressed and well educated, he loves books and stationary, and enjoys a good debate on books and authors.
Will is at rock bottom, new home, new job are what he needs.
Shaun is the landlord of Spring Hill Square and is a loner.
These characters and others have stories to tell and what better place to get to know them than The Teashop on the Corner.
I bought this and was not disappointed and recommend it to you.
The book was a page turner that had you rooting for all the characters alike as they battled with their individual deamons and how they became connected as friends through the tea shop on the corner.
Looking forward to reading the next Milly Johnson novel!
But it was the ending that really made it, a lovely (rather surprising) happy tear junker of a finish.
