Description

Spring Hill Square is a pretty sanctuary away from the bustle of every day life. And at its centre is Leni Merryman’s Teashop on the Corner, a place where three people will find a friend to lean on: Es la primera novela que leo de Milly Johnson y me ha gustado mucho la sensibilidad con la que describe los personajes y el finísimo sentido del humor con el que relata escenas dramáticas. Will has worked hard to build his business to the level where he and his wife can afford a life of luxury only to loose it all after a bad investment. Absolutely loved it. Milly's writing is like getting a big hug with just the right amount of bite underneath. I was rooting for Bonnie from the start' Jane Fallon Carla Pride has just discovered that her late husband Martin was not who she thought he was. But now she must learn to put her marriage behind her and move forward.

Pavitar Singh is a lonely retired doctor with a great love of literature – and a thirst for like-minded company. Carla Pride has just discovered that her late husband Martin was not who she thought he was. And now she must learn to put her marriage behind her and move forward.The Teashop on the Corner has a perfect mix of tea, cake, books and friendship. Johnson’s descriptions of Leni’s literary wares makes me want to jump straight online to find some of these gems for myself. It fills me with a need to read the classics mentioned throughout the novel. A mi parte romántica le habría gustado que la historia de Leni y Shaw estuviera más desarollada, aunque lo cierto es que es casi perfecta. The story might seem complex at first, with many characters and their stories overlapping, but once you get into it you won't be able to put this book down. The Teashop on the Corner is a lovely spot owned by Leni, a pretty much upbeat person who loves serving delicious cakes and everything literary. Her little shop soon becomes a place where Molly and Carla come to escape from the their problems and cruel reality, but also a place where over Bronte and other classics they bond and form new interesting friendships.

Since I have read "Here Come the Girls" I fell in love with Milly's writing and although this book still stays on the pole position in my favourites, "The Teashop on the Corner" is very, very high in my rating, just behind. Probably I should create a new rating scale because I would give this book many, many more as only 5 stars.

Ratings of The Tea Shop Around The Corner

With so many characters, and so many alternating plots, with the story told from so many point of views there was not a single moment that I felt confused or didn't know who is who. They stories and characters are just brilliantly written and developed and I can't say that I have my favourites. I had fell for all of them and kept my fingers crossed for all of them, I actually felt that I live and breath with them. They are all on crossroads with their lives, they have their challenges and perhaps this makes this book so exceptional and realistic in perception. Having just this minute finished reading The Teashop on the Corner by Milly Johnson, I am so sad to have to leave the wonderful group of characters behind but also I am still buzzing at what an incredible read this was. The menu features a good selection of vegetarian options, such as the Greek salad and Welsh rarebit, which are both highly recommended. Other popular dishes include the scrambled eggs on toast, afternoon tea, and the homemade cakes, which are simply divine. For drinks, the tea is a must-try, and the coffee is excellent too. There are also soft drinks and wines available. El café de los corazones solitarios" es una novela coral, en mi oponión hay dos historias principales y dos (o tres, según se mire) historias secundarias y el hilo que las une con elegancia es el café del título, que casi tiene vida propia. Al principio me costó un poco entrar en la historia pues los capítulos son muy cortos y la autora los utuliza para ir cambiando el punto de vista de narrador, que siempre es en tercera persona. Pero cuando entré en la dinámica me resultó fascinante y debo confesar que admiro a la autora por ser capaz de llevar tantas historias al mismo tiempo. Milly Johnson is an exceptional writer. She can capture characters, emotions and feelings in a magic way and then write about them with heart and love. I could feel that she gave the characters everything she could. They felt so real, not at all overdrawn, they were vivid and everything that happened in the book you could relate to, you could nod with understanding and gasp and say: oh my goodness, I know!
