The St Helen’s-born author, Trisha Ashley, catches the feel of life in Yorkshire despite now living in North Wales. The life of a baby girl abandoned as a baby on an isolated moor above Haworth was saved only because she was wrapped in a sheepskin rug and was found by a farmer in time to save her life.
Alice Rose decides to move to Haworth in an effort to discover who her real mother was
Adopted by a woman who made it plain she was not keen on the arrangement, Alice Rose decides to move to Haworth in an effort to discover who her real mother was.
A skilled cook, she buys a rundown tea shop and plans to make it into a place where people flock for a quality afternoon tea, helped by a neighbouring trader in antiques and his family.
The Little Teashop of Lost and Found is a pleasant tale, told alongside the plotting and planning of the restaurant, and the constantly changing relationship between Alice and her business neighbour – an attractive man whose attitude is ambivalent.
Few real shocks in the ending but you will learn some of the problems of running a teashop.
