A penniless young girl finds her life forever changed when she accepts a cup of tea from a wealthy society lady. Inspired by a Katherine Mansfield short story, Ephron creates a darkly romantic novel set in the midst of World War I. If you enjoyed Sebastian Faulks this one will appeal.

Rosemary is feeling in a generous mood as she leaves a shop with her purchases when she bumps into a young woman who asks her for money for a meal. Deciding to do a charitable act, Rosemary invites the young woman, Eleanor home for tea. This choice sets in motion a change in Rosemary's life that she is unwilling to accept and because of her shallow nature, she may lose everything.

The story seems like it's missing something. I never did feel like I cared much about any of the characters.
