New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Jennifer Donnelly returns to the unforgettable world of her beloved first novel, The Tea Rose.
It's the summer of 1891, New York City, in the early days of Fiona Finnegan's marriage to Nicholas Soames. Though their marriage is an unconventional one and the wounds of the past are not fully healed, the two best friends are happy together, chasing their dreams and building a better life for themselves and their loved ones.
When Fiona senses a quiet love blossoming between her widowed uncle Michael and his neighbor, Mary Munro, she's thrilled and hopes that MIchael will soon propose to Mary.
But one night, at a family supper, a surprise announcement tears these hopes asunder.
Will Mary be lost to a determined suitor? Or will Fiona and Nick unite two souls who belong together but are held apart by grief, pride, and too many words left unspoken?
Molly's Letter is a love letter to family, friends, and the bonds that outlast loss, pain, and even life itself.
Molly's Letter is the first in a series of novella-length stories written by Jennifer Donnelly for readers of her Tea Rose saga. Each one is inspired by - and set within - the epic world of The Tea Rose.
