AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Lost among the gaudy, busy streets of Macau, Grace's life is slowly unravelling. Her marriage to Pete, her Australian husband, is fraying and her dreams of having a family seem hopeless.

'With the heralding of a new year she resolves to do something bold. Something her impetuous Mama might do. In this pocket of China, filled with casinos and yum cha restaurants, she opens her own small cafe called Lillian's. This sanctuary of macarons and tea becomes a place where the women of Macau come together, bridging cultural divides, to share in each other's triumphs and pain. But Grace's immersion in the cafe is taking its toll on her marriage, and when things start to crumble in the cafe, Lillian's suddenly feels like a burden rather than an escape. The recipe for disaster is complete when Pete does the unthinkable...

'Infused with the heady aromas of Macau and peppered with inspirational characters, The Colour of Tea takes you on a mouth-watering journey of the senses as Grace rediscovers what it is to love, to live with hope and embrace real happiness.' (From the publisher's website.)
