Of Tea...and Things
Everyone knows there are things and then there are Things, but happily Tea is nowhere near so complicated, so grab a cup and join Miss Iris as she ponders the impossible, the improbable, and the downright improper, at least for a Lady who tries to abide by the Standards. But what does one do when the Proper Thing is impossible? That’s what adventures are for, even if it is not thought quite, well, the proper thing, conventionally speaking of course. Just be sure to brew enough tea for an Aunt Mildred, the Fairy Queen, a Gentleman or Three, plus a Quilting Circle and many more; you never know who, or what, might show up at this particular tea party!
It's 'Northanger Abbey' meets 'The Greylands' with just a dash of 'The Foibles' thrown in for good measure. Whether you're looking for a good laugh, high society, a remedial lesson in Philosophy, lots of Natural History, or various Queens on the rampage, you never know what will happen next, except tea of course, unless you are a Thing. So grab your favorite cup and join the party!
About the Author
Once upon a time there was a sensible young lady who pursued a practical career, but finding it far less fulfilling than the proponents of the modern fairytale promulgate, she then married a clergyman, much to everyone’s astonishment, including her own, and in proper fairytale fashion keeps house for the mysterious gentleman in a far away land, spending most of her time in company with a very short, whimsical person who can almost speak English. She enjoys fantasy, fairy tales, and adventure stories and her writing reflects this quaint affectation. She considers Happy Endings (more or less) a requisite to good literature and sanity, though real stories never, truly end.
