Alice Rose is a foundling, discovered on the Yorkshire moors above Haworth as a baby. Adopted but then later rejected again by a horrid step-mother, Alice struggles to find a place where she belongs. Only baking – the scent of cinnamon and citrus and the feel of butter and flour between her fingers – brings a comforting sense of home. So it seems natural that when she finally decides to return to Haworth, Alice turns to baking again, taking over a run-down little teashop. There are one or two last twists in the dark fairytale of Alice’s life to come . . . but can she find her happily ever after?
This is a lovely book that’s not just about romance but family and friendships too. This is another good book to sit down and cosy up.
