I loved Claire Fullerton’s descriptive writing. I could feel and see the woods, the lakes and the old marshes she described. The heat, the bugs, the drinks, and the music were all so well described that the atmosphere was as much a character as the three women were.

Little Tea is a lovely story that will resonate with the reader for quite some time. It is an amazing story of love, loss, family, friendship, and second chances that will simply stir your soul!
~Jersey Girl Book Reviews
The journey Celia, Ava, and Renny take over the course of the weekend goes beyond what I first imagined was going to happen. Little Tea is a treasure to be savored.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Fullerton weaves this story in a way that made me feel as if I were one of the threads in the fabric of Celia’s life. Her exquisite descriptive writing style will transport you to the south a plop you right into the story.

…the past story was my favorite and the one I was most invested in. As situations unfolded and we learned more about Celia, Hayward, John, Little Tea, and the rest, I suspected several outcomes but some were still a surprise.
It didn’t take me long to realize this book was going to be a gem! The author pulled me in wholeheartedly from the very beginning! The synopsis doesn’t even scratch the surface.

Southern Culture … Old Friendships … Family Tragedy
One phone call from Renny to come home and “see about” the capricious Ava and Celia Wakefield decides to overlook her distressful past in the name of friendship.
For three reflective days at Renny’s lake house in Heber Springs, Arkansas, the three childhood friends reunite and examine life, love, marriage, and the ties that bind, even though Celia’s personal story has yet to be healed. When the past arrives at the lake house door in the form of her old boyfriend, Celia must revisit the life she’d tried to outrun.
As her idyllic coming of age alongside her best friend, Little Tea, on her family’s ancestral grounds in bucolic Como, Mississippi unfolds, Celia realizes there is no better place to accept her own story than in this circle of friends who have remained beside her throughout the years. Theirs is a friendship that can talk any life sorrow into a comic tragedy, and now that the racial divide in the Deep South has evolved, Celia wonders if friendship can triumph over history.
