An irresistible, warm-hearted story of lost love, new-found happiness, and the kindness of strangers.
Cordelia Potterton is about to turn ninety-four, and she's determined to do it in style. The antique cake stand has been polished, the white linen napkins are folded, and the darjeeling is brewing in a silver tea pot. There's only one thing missing: the guests.
It's up to her cleaner and her nephew to keep the celebrations going – and make sure Miss Potterton's birthday tea is a day she will never forget.
