Join Greta and Minette once more for the heartwarming conclusion of the award-winning Tea Dragon series!
Over a year since being entrusted with Ginseng’s care, Greta still can’t chase away the cloud of mourning that hangs over the timid Tea Dragon. As she struggles to create something spectacular enough to impress a master blacksmith in search of an apprentice, she questions the true meaning of crafting, and the true meaning of caring for someone in grief. Meanwhile, Minette receives a surprise package from the monastery where she was once training to be a prophetess. Thrown into confusion about her path in life, the shy and reserved Minette finds that the more she opens her heart to others, the more clearly she can see what was always inside.
Told with the same care and charm as the previous installments of the Tea Dragon series, The Tea Dragon Tapestry welcomes old friends and new into a heartfelt story of purpose, love, and growth.
The Tea Dragon Tapestry is as beautiful and meaningful as the rest of the series of tea dragon stories.
It ties together the first and the second volume. All of our beloved characters get to shine once again and share their lives with us.
The main theme of this volume is the feeling of displacement — through grief, loss of passion for something you love, nostalgia for the old ways, or not knowing your place in the world and being unsure which parts of you are the genuine you.
The Tea Dragon Tapestry tells us that each part of us matters and has a place in our life. That our tapestry is not made only of the secretly chosen parts we have to guess but that we create it as we live.
Katie O’Neill’s work is always heartwarming and uplifting for me and this one didn’t disappoint. I’m sad the story is over now because I truely fell in love with it but I’m glad I was here for the journey. This is a series which should be read to every kid in the world and adults could benefit as well.
