“The Teashop on the Corner” opens its doors to the costumers. Little by little, all the characters that need a place where they can relax begin to visit the teashop and to enjoy the very beautiful literary environment and the delicious desserts, coffees or teas.
Leni, a very nice woman, is the owner of the teashop, Shaun McCarthy, a cold and mysterious man, is her lessor. Carla Martelli (before Pride), Mr. Pavitar Singh, Molly Jones and Harvey Hoyland are the usual costumers of the place. Each one of them has a sad story behind, an unfaithful and liar husband, a dead wife or a separated couple that never stopped to love each other. There’s also the story of a man who lost everything, including his wife, after doing a bad deal, Will Linton, or the young member of a criminal family who’s not like them, Ryan, and who likes to work in a place where books are important.
Most of them share the love for books and items related to books. Together they support each other and realize that life doesn’t end after one of that tragedies, there’s always hope and good things can happen after that, also that in the teashop and its costumers they can find shelter.
There were a lot of literary items that I would love to have…a place like that would become my favorite place to visit.
I think that the story is very beautiful, emotive and encouraging. It has very funny moments that made me laugh and also drama, for example, the stories of Leni and Molly, who in spite of everything never gave up. I believe that the book’s teaching is a great one.
I enjoyed so much this book, I didn’t want it to end. It made me happy and now it’s one of my favorites.
