The Teahouse Fire by Ellis Avery

Set in the late 19th and early 20th century Japan, the novel follows the life of a young American girl who, after a tragic twist of fate, finds herself orphaned in Kyoto. She is taken in by the family of a tea master, where she becomes deeply immersed in the culture and traditions of the Japanese tea ceremony. As she grows and navigates her complex identity and the societal changes of a rapidly modernizing Japan, her unique perspective as an outsider within a traditional world offers a poignant exploration of belonging, love, and the intersection of cultures.
