Just when things are falling apart, an unexpected visitor arrives
It’s been years since Nina Blake was whisked away from Los Angeles by Brandon McCoy to his remote Oklahoma hometown. Now a nationally acclaimed romance novelist, Nina’s once loving marriage has evolved into bickering and emotional disconnection. The romance novelist whose life is devoid of romance – it’s the most humiliating form of irony. In a desperate plea for guidance, Nina pours a cup of tea over her Grandma Isabel’s grave and inexplicably starts receiving visits from her beloved relative whenever she brews a cup. With Grandma’s counseling, Nina begins a journey to remember who she truly is.
Tea with Isabel is a heartfelt story that tests the durability of real-life love. It celebrates the power of female relation- ships, and with a whisper of mysticism, the poignancy of spending time with a loved one lost.
JULIE SNEED WOMACK grew up in La Cañada Flintridge and recently moved to a small town in Oklahoma. Tea with Isabel, which released this summer, is her first book.
