Rosemary Fell was born into privilege. She has wealth, wellÃ¢ÂÂconnected friends, and a handsome fiance, Philip Alsop. Finally she has everything she wants.
It is then, in a moment of beneficence, that Rosemary invites Eleanor Smith, a penniless young woman she sees under a streetlamp in the rain, into her home for a cup of tea. While there, Rosemary sees Eleanor exchange an unmistakable look with Philip, and she sends Eleanor on her way. But she cannot undo this chance encounter, and it leads to a tempestuous and allÃ¢ÂÂconsuming love triangle Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂ until the tides of war throw all their lives off balance.
Inspired by a classic Katherine Mansfield short story, A Cup of Tea engages with its vivid Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂ and often amusing Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂ cast of characters, wonderful period detail, brilliant evocation of the uncertain days of World War I, and delightfully spare and picturesque sense of story.
