A Spot of Sweet Tea by Maria Grace

Sweet, Austen-inspired treats, perfect with a cup of tea.

Full of hope and ripe with possibility, beginnings and new beginnings refresh the spirit with optimism and anticipation.

Four Days in April.

Two letters. Four Days.  Everything changes.

After offering a most disastrous proposal of marriage and receiving a rebuke he will never forget, Fitzwilliam Darcy writes Elizabeth Bennet an equally memorable letter.

What if she answers it with one of her own?

Last Dance

To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love. Mary was not. Nor was she fond of dresses or

balls or parties, or any of the things most girls her age adored.

With three sisters married, Aunt Philips insists she must be next. But is dancing essential to falling in love?

Not Romantic

Once burned is twice shy. Charlotte has no place for romantic notions or sentimentality. All she asks is a comfortable home and a man who is respectable and steady.

But the only man she knows who fits that description pines for her best friend. Must she betray her friendship to pursue everything she has ever hoped for

Sweet Ginger

Harriet Smith has abandoned all hope of a home and family of her own and plans a future teaching for Mrs.  Goddard.

Things change with the arrival Rachel and Margaret Martin whose grumpy old bear of a brother might just have a taste for ginger.
