QBD Reviews: Jennifer Donnelly’s The Tea Rose

tea roseI don’t often read historical novels so I wasn’t sure how I would go with this but this was such a delightful read! The writing isn’t stuffy or heavy, it flows with real ease and I was absolutely transported to 1888. From the poor streets of Whitechapel to New York where Fiona really does make her fortune the setting became so vivid in my mind. Jennifer Donnelly has created a main character who exhibits real gumption and independence while also being quite delicate and sensitive, Fiona is truly endearing. While there hardships and tragedy this was such a lovely, heart-warming story.
