Tea at Glenbrooke Apr 9, 2007
My husband and I were on vacation when I found this book in a little cottage style gift shop. I had not read Ms. Gunn's fiction stories, so had no expectations in that aspect when I bought it. It is a beautifully illustrated book with sweet, heartwarming short stories. I have enjoyed this book for at least 5 years and it still brings a smile whenever I spot it on my shelf. I place it right up there with the tea books written by Emilie Barnes.
Not what I expected Apr 16, 2003
I have read and loved the books in Mrs. Gunn's "Glenbrooke" series, and I was hoping to find illustrations of the homes and gardens in fictional Glenbrooke, Oregon. I was seeking the recipes mentioned, but not provided, in the Glenbrooke books. I thought that the characters would be mentioned, or that their relationships might be elaborated upon...I was sadly disappointed. This is a lovely gift book, filled with brief, warm reflections on the author's own special moments revolving around the tea ritual. The illustrations are colorful and peaceful. The recipes look well-devised and tempting, though, I must admit, I have not tried any. This is a delightful book for people interested in "taking tea" with the author. But, I am sad to say, the relationship this book has to the Glenbrooke series is tangential at best.
All that I wish, but may not have...... Mar 19, 2003
Do you long for the porch swing, but don't have the porch? Do you love beautiful gardens, but, like me, are an inept gardner? Do you need just a miniscule time of refreshment? May I recommend Robin Jones Gunn's book, TEA AT GLENBROOKE? This is a lovely book to both have and to give. I gave myself this book as as Christmas present. Now, I plan on giving this book to my friends who need that brief moment of escape into the peaceful world found in this book. The musings, the artwork, and the recipes offer something for all. To those who buy it, may I just say: "Enjoy!"
A wonderful book Sep 28, 2002
This attractive little book is so wonderfully eclectic! It represents the author's idea of what it's like when women come together over a cup of tea. Well, as a fan of tea and tearooms, I can tell you that tea brings this out in all of us!
Anyway, this book is a wonderful collection of poems, recipes, and touching musings and anecdotes. All of this is complemented by the charming watercolor illustrations by Susan Mink Colclough. This is a wonderful book, one that you should read outside, on a sunny day, with a cup of Earl Grey in your hand!
A wonderful retreat Dec 4, 2001
I read "Tea at Glenbrooke" on an airplane and stepped off that plane filled and refreshed. Robin's poetic writing is the perfect gift for your friends or you.
