About the book:
“Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience – or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.”―Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.
In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn’t so far away.
I love this author! Not only does she have amazing recipes throughout this book that make your mouth water, lovers of Jane Austen will be loving the familiarity of the story told in a new and contemporary way. I just loved every moment of reading this book. Tea, recipes, and Jane Austen, I mean, what is there to not love. So, even if you are not a Jane Austen fan, you will enjoy this well written novel of three sisters and making over their life.
Misused, abused and they still come up with smiling faces, you think of some of those flowers that never give up after being crushed. If you are looking for a good summer read, or one to give as gifts, this is one you will want to pick up.
