The first book ended in a major cliffhanger and I loved that ending a lot. We found out a lot of interesting information. Now in this book will find out which couples will stay with whom, and what's going to happen with all of the info we found out about in the first book.
So I am really enjoying this book a whole lot but it's getting very strange, and I am as torn as the two girls on whom they should chose in the end.
Yes there was cheating in the book, but if you read the first book, you'll understand that the parties involved, weren't really at fault. I will not say why, because that will really be a big spoiler, if you haven't read the first book.
I will be doing a review for this book, but I am taking part on a book tour for this book, my spot is Nov, 15th, so my review will be up on that day. So be on the lookout for that review on that date.
Then it got really boring. Tea is a hobby and I was intrigued by the subtitle of 'Addiction, Exploitation, and Empire'. I had hoped this book would address the less "romantic" aspects of tea (tea parties held by people in nice clothes, etc.) and more about the darker side of tea, its place in history, how it's harvested, etc.
Initially we start off with Moxham's own history of picking up and working on a tea estate in Africa and that definitely perked my interest. Then he leaps into the history of tea and its role in the Opium Wars and the like. The information is interesting, but boy is the author really dry. Like other readers I also side-eyed some of his language (he talks about growing up with the idea of empire and he himself left the UK to make his adventure abroad in a British Protectorate which is now Malawi) although he is critical at points.
I couldn't help but feel it would have better if he had stuck to his own personal autobiography rather than aiming for a formal history of tea and woven the history in discussing what it was like to run an actual tea estate. He does return to this at the end but by then it is too late and it isn't worth the history.
Would really like to read a history of tea from the viewpoint of Indian or Chinese people, though.
I bought this and had it for awhile but it wasn't worth it. Skip it or at least make the effort to see if a library has it instead.
People can stumble and go through dark days, whether in forms of substance addiction or bad experience. But at the end of the day, what matters is how you get back to your feet and back to being healthy and productive. You can find a lot of Southern California Rehab but there is nothing like the luxury we offer in our facility. However, more on our luxurious facility, we provide effective and customized treatment plan to our patients.

Unequalled treatment, care and support
Compared to other rehabilitation facilities, we offer holistic approach in treating our patients. We have qualified medical practitioners and therapists who are well-known in their fields and with ample experiences in handling patients. Before treatment and rehabilitation starts, our therapists conduct a thorough evaluation on the patient to come up with the most suitable treatment plan and recommendations. During the rehab program, we give emphasis on the different aspects that promote speedy recovery of the patient such as nurturing the spiritual, nutritional, environmental and emotional needs.

When it comes to the leading drug rehabilitation center in the United States, Luxury Rehab Facility tops the list because of the state of the art facility and professionals in the medical field. The location is also ideal for patients who are trying to escape the hustle and bustle of the city but still remain connected to the outside world. Not every addict will respond to the traditional detoxing method and luxury rehab facility employs holistic diagnostic approach. Unlike conventional approach where alternative prescription drugs are given as relief, holistic approach is one-of-a-kind because different treatments are given to each patient. Cleansing is done in both body and mind to achieve a drug-free lifestyle.
How do you know when you or your loved one is already considered an addict? Signs and symptoms may be different for every person depending on the substance they are taking but several indicators can help determine if someone is addicted to drugs. Luxury rehab facility reminds everyone to keep an eye for these symptoms so that treatment can be given as early as possible.
The first thing that will be affected is a person’s craving for the specific drugs. Their body slowly becomes dependent on the drugs that they can no longer function properly or they feel that they are at their worst when they don’t take the drug. They started to get used to the influence of the drug while in their system. As time passes by, their tolerance also increases which means that upping the dose is necessary for them to feel the desired effects.
An addict will feel withdrawal symptoms whenever they cease to use or take the drug either instantly or over time. When symptoms show during withdrawal period, this means that physiologic dependence is already present. A person addicted to drugs may do anything wrong and illegal just to get more of the drug. It can be in the form of stealing, selling drugs, committing crimes, lying and engaging in unprotected sex.
When these signs start to show, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid further damage into the mind and body of the patient.
