THE STORYTELLER'S COTTAGE
Tracing the Path of
"The Traveling Tea Shop"
In the charming book, "The Traveling Tea Shop" by Belinda Jones, a British tour guide is offered the travel & baking adventure of a lifetime. Protagonist Laurie Davis is asked to organizing a unique bakery-based road trip across New England in a double-decker bus, where at each stop, fictional British baking celebrity Pamela Lambert-Leigh will learn about a traditional pastry and bake a British version of the same. As the organizer, Laurie will not only choose the scenic locations and the featured historic pastry specialties, but she must also troubleshoot the travel dilemmas and personality clashes along the way.
While managing family dramas and flat tires isn't particularly appealing, the rest of the fictional trip is a dream come true for many readers. Wouldn't it be fun to trace the route that Laurie and the gang took, and sample the specialty pastries along the way?
