At the tables of Elise's Tea Room, the fine china dishes sit on crisp tablecloths, and the smell of fresh chocolate scones and gentle conversation occupy the cozy space. Inspired by family traditions, a quaint afternoon tea is taking place. The history of tea goes back centuries, to Chinese Emperor Shen Nung in 2737 BC. For all these years, tea has been a part of important customs around the globe-from high tea in small kitchens to afternoon tea with royal families. And for Elise Benavidez, author and owner of Elise's Tea Room, tea is part of a rich family heritage through the stories of her great-grandmother and grandmother and through her personal recollections. Opening the tea room was her way of recreating the wonderful environment of her memories and sharing it with others. Elise also shares her vast knowledge of the essentials of tea-related etiquette-everything from table manners to place settings. The final chapter shares her most delicious recipes to serve when hosting an afternoon tea, such as spinach quiche and chocolate chip scones. Experience tea as a way to celebrate being together while sharing a traditional drink that warms hands and hearts.

"Tea has been one of the most popular commodities in the world. Over centuries, profits from its growth and sales funded wars and fueled colonization, and its cultivation brought about massive changes--in land use, labor systems, market practices, and social hierarchies--the effects of which are with us even today. A Thirst for Empire takes a vast and in-depth historical look at how men and women--through the tea industry in Europe, Asia, North America, and Africa--transformed global tastes and habits and in the process created our modern consumer society. As Erika Rappaport shows, between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries the boundaries of the tea industry and the British Empire overlapped but were never identical, and she highlights the economic, political, and cultural forces that enabled the British Empire to dominate--but never entirely control--the worldwide production, trade, and consumption of tea. Rappaport delves into how Europeans adopted, appropriated, and altered Chinese tea culture to build a widespread demand for tea in Britain and other global markets and a plantation-based economy in South Asia and Africa. Tea was among the earliest colonial industries in which merchants, planters, promoters, and retailers used imperial resources to pay for global advertising and political lobbying. The commercial model that tea inspired still exists and is vital for understanding how politics and publicity influence the international economy ..."--Jacket.

By caring for the needs of the train passengers due to blocked rails, inhabitants of the little town of Bugler set the stage in 1897 for a life-changing experience for at least one of them. Elise was becoming convinced bad things would continue to befall her. The warm, helpful welcome gave her new direction. A series of unexpected events, both joyful and trying, reinforced her character growth. Meet and become acquainted with Kate, her new friend; Becky, the landlady, an encourager and gentle mentor; Tom, who owned the leather shop and always gave a bit more than the customer expected; Jake, the cabinetmaker and friend of Becky; Silas, who called the square dances and loved a good story, plus the pastor and his family, livery stable owner; and other interactive neighbors and ranchers. When the time came, would Elise choose this chance at what she felt might be her real happiness, or would family pressures cause her to return to her society upbringing, leaving Bugler behind as an impossible dream?
With breakfast and chores done later, she set to work on the old recipe. Her
mother had made this wedding cake when she and Hank were married and
Becky wanted Elise to have one. First she ... Becky quickly washed and wiped

'She'd never dreamt she'd wind up being a mum before she had a baby.' Can you ever be ready for a ready-made family? When Annie is swept off her feet by handsome widower Simon Keeler, she thinks all her dreams have come true. But Simon comes with baggage: seven-year-old daughter, Lydia, who's less than keen for a new mother - especially one as clueless as Annie. Soon the Keelers relocate to an exclusive small town in Connecticut. Amongst the country clubs, landscaped gardens and fashionable parents, Annie struggles to fit in. And after forgetting to collect her step-daughter from school and hosting the dinner party from hell, she begins to wonder if she's mother material. Enlisting the help of some new friends and a frisky horse called PomPom, Annie is determined to step up to the plate, but can she ever become the wife and mother her ready-made family needs...?
