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.

An Unexpected Treasure!!
I had never heard of this author before. But when it was offered as a free download, I thought I'd give it a go. I'm so glad I did! It's a story of love and tragedy, ambition, revenge and so much more. If you love a good British period piece, this one is for you! The characters have become beloved to me! The narrator does a fantastic job as well! I can't wait to listen to the next in the series!
