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

Thirtysomething 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. Amid 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.

    " I have now chosen this for my Bookclub's next book! It was an enjoyable read. It kept me reading, did not want to put it down! At the beginning of the book you wonder, what it has to do with its title. But it becomes clearer, as read on. The remarkable part, was the shift between two worlds. Another first time writer, who should continue to write. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 2/9/2014

    " This book was chosen for our book club selection next month. I loved the entire book! Took me only two days to finish it. I was immersed in the book for the entire time. Kenya is definitely a country on my bucket list now after having read the book. I wanted more once the book was finished! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 2/7/2014

    " Although the topic or theme of the book was good, I felt there just was no "depth" to this story. It was fairly easy to predict what was going to happen throughout the story. I wanted to read this as I saw some very high ratings. I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed with this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Keri Coulson | 2/4/2014

    " I found this book to be unbelievable most of the conversation between Mama Bu and Nicole sounded like it was regurgiated from other a Kenyan Political History text book or from a psyhc text book. I am not sure of the age of the author but it came across as if it was written by a 20 something with very limited real life experience. A terrible read. I cannot believe KOBO recommended this book for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb Guthrie | 1/28/2014

    " Took me back to Africa "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh Ashworh | 1/26/2014

    " 3.5 - A lovely, heartwarming story. I enjoyed learning a bit about another culture, and as a mother and teacher, I found the main character relatable. A quick read and happy ending. Sometimes that's just what you need! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elina | 1/22/2014

    " What a great book! I would compare this to Eat, Pray, Love but more realistic. I really couldn't put it down, the descriptions make you feel like you're in Africa with the main character. Strongly recommend this book for anyone who needs a reminder to think positively. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn | 1/16/2014

    " Just started reading...it is already an emotional roller coaster ride. You can really rate to Nic and what she is going through. Can't wait to read more tonight! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette Armstrong | 1/6/2014

    " I can't remember the last time a book made me cry, and this book moved me to tears in a few different places. The story is so well told and so accurate, with details so perfectly described. I can't recommend this book highly enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derrien | 12/10/2013

    " I loved the first half of the book. Second half felt like it was too quickly tied up. I wanted to hear more about Africa! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katrina Carter | 12/3/2013

    " I finished reading this book last week for my book club and I couldn't put it down...it totally drew me in. In fact, almost a week later, I am still thinking of it. This is a fantastic read that is lined in hope. There aren't enough books out there like it. I loved it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paula | 11/25/2013

    " After losing her infant child and her marriage, a young woman travels to Kenya to teach in the slums. This is a sweet story by a first time Oakville writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorna | 11/2/2013

    " Bit predictable, bit over-emotional. Sweet tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie Mcmillan | 10/28/2013

    " I loved this book and couldn't put it down - it's one of the best books I've read in a long time. I laughed out loud and bawled my eyes out. So so good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire Bondy | 10/25/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annie | 9/30/2013

    " This would have been a good first or second draft of a potential novel. The author fell short in several areas. She should have researched Kenya and the teaching profession more. More effort to the ending would have improved the story by leaps. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Finch | 9/5/2013

    " Loved, loved, loved. Anyone looking for a great read that they can't put down should pick up this book. I bawled my eyes out and couldn't stop reading, but there are also some really tender, heartwarming moments as well. And it doesn't end sad - that's all I will say. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy Chard | 5/24/2013

    " This book was an easy read, so that works in its favour. There was something distinctly unlikeable about it, though. Despite the meaty concept, it felt flat and overly sentimental. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 4/30/2013

    " A touching story but was hoping for a different outcome, ended too abruptly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo Skinner | 4/20/2013

    " this book was fantastic!about moving on despite hardship and heartache.there is always more to achieve in life.beautiful story "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 3/13/2013

    " I enjoyed the book but some parts of the beginning weren't quite convincing - seemed forced. Loved it once she went to Kenya. "
