An exciting debut novel set in the exotic, bustling streets of coastal China, about a woman whose life is restored when she opens a small café and gains the courage to trust what's in her heart.

Among the gaudy, busy streets of Macau, Grace Miller has lost her way. Her marriage to Pete, her Australian husband, is fraying and her dreams of having a family seem impossible.

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 a small cafe. A sanctuary of macarons and tea, Lillian's becomes a place where the women of Macau meet, bridging cultural divides and sharing in each other's joys and heartbreaks.

For Grace, life seems to be finally coming together. But when Pete does the unthinkable, the secrets Grace thought she had buried rise to the surface, and it's now or never to lay old ghosts to rest, and trust her heart to lead her.

  • Not quite sure

    By Leggy from Down Under
    The cover of this book was what intrigued me to purchase it rather than the preview I read beforehand, and even though I wasn’t disappointed with the way characters intertwined, the story line and the ease of reading this book to the very end, it did however leave me feeling kind of flat towards the end. Perhpas this was the authors intention for the reader to just go with the flow and I was expecting more. None the less, it was an enjoyable interlude in my diverse collection of reading material.

    I bought this book not expecting too much, but was drawn in from the very beginning. The ending is slightly predictable but I loved all the characters in this book.
