The Tea Rose
- Written by: Jennifer Donnelly
- Narrated by: Jill Tanner
- Length: 28 hrs and 31 mins
East London, 1888 - a city apart. A place of shadow and light where thieves, whores, and dreamers mingle, where children play in the cobbled streets by day and a killer stalks at night, where bright hopes meet the darkest truths. Here, by the whispering waters of the Thames, Fiona Finnegan, a worker in a tea factory, hopes to own a shop one day, together with her lifelong love, Joe Bristow, a costermonger's son. With nothing but their faith in each other to spur them on, Fiona and Joe struggle, save, and sacrifice to achieve their dreams.

So many twists and turns! Amazing Story
Very impressed with the story that has weaved some very interesting/historical facts. The narration was amazing. It kept me motivated and many time on the edge of my seat. Long story that wraps up very nicely. So impressed that I am now reading The Winter Rose. New story line that carries over many characters from this book! Great author.
