A Cup of Tea A Novel of 1917

Ephron turns the notion of the good Samaritan on its head in a bauble of a tale about altruism gone horribly wrong.
—Publishers’ Weekly

 

 

International Bestseller

Rosemary Fell was born into privilege. She has wealth, well–connected friends, and a handsome fiance, Philip Alsop. Finally she has everything she wants.

It is then, in a moment of beneficence, that Rosemary invites Eleanor Smith, a penniless young woman she sees under a streetlamp in the rain, into her home for a cup of tea. While there, Rosemary sees Eleanor exchange an unmistakable look with Philip, and she sends Eleanor on her way. But she cannot undo this chance encounter, and it leads to a tempestuous and all–consuming love triangle –– until the tides of war throw all their lives off balance.

DAILY BEAST DUBBED IT
"A HOT READ”

L.A. TIMES SAYS:
[A] nosegay of life essays whose pronouncs are mostly ‘I’ and ‘we,’ but are also by implication ‘you’ – as in, ‘here’s my experience of this or that life-changing moment; what’s yours?” – Patt Morrison   

THE DAILY CALLS IT "A LITTLE GEM"
"She is an expert at introspection as entertainment...the collection masters brevity and range." – Claire Howorth

HELLO GIGGLES CALLS IT "A FUN AND ENGAGING READ."
"The pages turn themselves...Not only do the essays stand up on their own, the overarching themes unravel themselves beautifully."  -- Julia Gazdag
