Every good young Englishwoman knows that her destiny depends upon a good marriage match. But Isabella Goodrich is not your typical good young Englishwoman.
After an encounter with those less fortunate than she, witty and fun-loving Isabella makes a shocking decision.
Against everyone’s advice and wishes, she is going to become a missionary in the Far East.
Fighting against cultural expectations, common sense, and a mentor who is not as he seems, Isabella leaves her predictable Oxford life behind and sets sail to a new world fraught with danger.
Can she trust the mysterious missionary Phineas Snowe? Or will her adventure end before it even begins?
A delightful story for readers who like high adventure, twisting plots, and a hint of romance.
Endorsements for All The Tea In China:
“All the Tea in China is a wonderful book. Jane Orcutt’s characters are inventive, her plot is artfully strung, the writing is excellent, the historical research is solid, and, of course, there is that rather large sword. It’s a book truly worth all the tea in China.” – Rachel Niehaus, Christian Book Previews.com
“I can't remember when I had so much fun learning about another culture, and learning the art of compassion.”- author Hannah Alexander
“I was grinning by the end of the first sentence. What a delight to travel from Oxford to the Orient with headstrong Isabella Goodrich! A well-educated Englishwoman with more than a teaspoonful of courage, Isabella has her heart set on China, even as a certain gentleman fixes his eye on her. Solid research and sprightly pacing make for a pleasurable read. Truly good to the last drop!”- Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Whence Came a Prince
“Jane Orcutt’s All the Tea in China has been well-defined as a “rollicking Regency!” Writing with a delightful combination of verve and charm, Orcutt presents Isabella Goodrich as an intelligent, spunky, good-hearted girl who never lacks for adventure . . . or daring. I loved journeying with her from England to China, and from naiveté to maturity!” –Angela Hunt, author of Uncharted and The Elevator
“With its rich detail and saucy characters, All the Tea in China is a fun romp around Cape Horn and into China. I loved the spunk of Isabella, the mystery of Phineas, and the allure of a country so distant from our own. Hats off to Jane Orcutt for such an enjoyable read!” - Marlo Schalesky, author of Veil of Fire
