Tea Room Logo


Author of the critically acclaimed TEATIME FOR THE FIREFLY and the new FLAME TREE ROAD, Shona Patel will be coming to the English Rose Tea Room next Sunday August 16th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. 
Shona was born and raised on a remote tea plantation in Assam, India. The daughter of a tea planter, she drew upon her personal observations and experiences to create the vivid characters and setting for the story. Her second novel Flame Tree Road (Mira-Harper Collins, June 30, 2015) received a starred review on Booklist and is now also available.

Listen as she reads from her book Tea Time for the Firefly, a romance set on an Assam tea plantation during the 1940's. Purchase your own signed copy and meet this talented and fascinating local author.  The Poisoned Pen book store from Scottsdale will have both Shona's books available for purchase.
