An exciting debut novel set in the exotic, bustling streets of coastal China, about a woman whose life is restored when she opens a small café and gains the courage to trust what's in her heart.

Among the gaudy, busy streets of Macau, Grace Miller has lost her way. Her marriage to Pete, her Australian husband, is fraying and her dreams of having a family seem impossible.

With the heralding of a new year she resolves to do something bold. Something her impetuous Mama might do. In this pocket of China, filled with casinos and yum cha restaurants, she opens a small cafe. A sanctuary of macarons and tea, Lillian's becomes a place where the women of Macau meet, bridging cultural divides and sharing in each other's joys and heartbreaks.

For Grace, life seems to be finally coming together. But when Pete does the unthinkable, the secrets Grace thought she had buried rise to the surface, and it's now or never to lay old ghosts to rest, and trust her heart to lead her.

Author Information

Born in New Zealand, Hannah Tunnicliffe is a self-confessed nomad. After finishing a degree in Social Sciences she ventured from her homeland's fair shores to live in Australia, England, Macau and, memorably, a campervan named Fred. A career in Human Resources and Career Coaching has been put on the backburner to pursue her dream of becoming a writer. She currently lives in Vancouver, Canada with her husband, Matthew and her daughter, Wren. The Colour of Tea is her first novel.
