Story Description:

ECW Press|April 1, 2012|Trade Paperback|ISBN: 978-1-77041-082-4

Explore the true resilience of the heart - and one woman's determination to find hope in a world fraught with adversity

Thirty-something Nicky Fowler has it all - a rewarding career, a loving husband and the perfect home. But when she and her husband suffer a complicated tragedy, the strain of two people dealing with an impossible situation in different ways breaks up their marriage.

Emotionally lost, Nicky travels to Kenya to volunteer at an orphanage. Amidst the violence and abject poverty, Nicky discovers the one thing that keeps Kenyans moving forward: hope. Over steaming mugs of chai, the country's signature drink, Nicky opens up to her host mother, Mama Bu, and finds understanding, love and strength. And with that strength, Nicky realizes what she needs to do to save the endangered children she's grown to love. Based on a true story, CHAI TEA SUNDAY is a glorious portrayal of the power of the human spirit.

My Review:

Heather Clark's debut novel CHAI TEA SUNDAY is going to be a big hit!! Tender, startling, filled with sadness, violence, yet hope, goodness and the Kenyan spirit teaches Nicky some major life lessons that she will apply to the rest of her life.

Nicky and her beloved husband, Eric, suffer a terribly devastating and sad loss that would knock the wind out of any parents. Each encompassed in their own grief and dealing with it in different ways their marriage falls apart and they separate after some thirteen very happy years together.

As I started reading this book I could not put it down. I was originally drawn to learning about the relationship of Nicky and her husband, then I was torn as they battled difficulty. As Nicky moved her life accross the country to try to regain a sense of herself I packed my bag to join her.

The life lead in Kenya was one I haven't had the opportunity to glimpse into often and I truly enjoyed the Historical aspects, the understanding of life there and the development of some amazing characters. I was really drawn to Mama Bu and how she leads her life and treads so lightly around the issues of the orphanage. All the while she is really planting the seeds in Nicky for her future and making sure to right the wrongs and better the lives for the children at the orphanage! This was a fantastic book and one I am so glad I got the opportunity to read and review!

Check out the full review on Kritters Ramblings

A heartwrenching story that went to a place that I did not expect. From page one the reader falls in love with Nicky, a young married woman who is trying all the possible ways to conceive a child with her husband. With a twist of fate she is pregnant and tragedy strikes. When it has become unbearable to pick up the pieces she takes herself across the globe to Kenya to work in an orphanage as a teacher. A story that begins with a couple trying to have a child and ends with a woman who is surrounded by many children who need the basics.

Format: Paperback
I read this because we're planning a trip to Kenya this summer. I loved the observations about Kenya, bits of Swahili, and the ideas I got for working with children because of her descriptions of the orphanage. Oh, I also learned a bit about the political situation, and hadn't even realized that Eldoret (which we are flying into) had been involved in such an awful way.
I'd recommend this book to anyone planning to go to Africa.
(The first 1/4 after the main character lands in Kenya seems a bit slow, but the pace definitely picks up, so stick with it.) The ending was perfect.
I hope this author writes another novel. It was a great piece of women's fiction to me - character growth, interesting and challenging circumstances, and a lovely romance between husband and wife. Well done! :)

All is well that ends well. In this wonderful story we have a young married couple, that can't seem to bring children into this world. However, one day they are successful. A little girl will be joining them soon. They both crave children, as a teacher Nicky loves children with such a passion.

When she has 2 months to go before their little girl will be born, Nicky suddenly goes into labor. But even more devestating is she is born with a rare disease and only lives a handful of hours.

Carrying this grief, Eric and Nicky deal with it in different ways, separating themselves which ultimately ends their relationship. So Nicky goes to Africa to help teach at an orphanage for 3 months.

Nicky has read everything about Africa that she thought would prepare her for living there. But she had so much to learn. They don't have the same freedoms as other countries, so many things. However, Nicky and the kids quickly develop a friendship and trust. The director of the orphanage seems to have an anger problem and that is where Nicky steps in.

Read find out how Nicky copes with the baby girl Ella's untimely death, how she adjusts to Africa and how she deals with her marriage ending.

I gave it 4 stars because in some places I felt a gap and a bit rushed.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
