The Tea House on Mulberry Street
Penny Stanley's seventeen-year marriage to Daniel is falling apart and so is their shabby tea house on Mulberry Street. But its regular customers love the cosy atmosphere and luscious desserts. Penniless artist Brenda Brown sits in the cafe penning letters to Nicolas Cage. Will they ever be answered? Sadie Smith finds refuge from her diet and her husband's ultra-slim mistress in a slice of the cafe's cherry cheesecake and Clare Fitzgerald returns to the tea house after twenty years in New York searching for an old flame. But the tea house needs more than a coat of paint and as Penny takes action she discovers it is a magical place with secrets of its own.
