July 2020 Box Reveal

Why The Last Flight?

Julie Clark’s novel reminded us of Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train with a modern twist that keeps you guessing. Eva and Claire are magnetic characters that draw you in to their less than ideal lives. The Last Flight is a novel that will draw you in and have you boarding a wild ride. The two storylines create tension but are easy to follow all while building suspense through many twists and turns.

July 2019 Box Reveal

July 2019 Box Reveal

We featured one of our all time favourite authors, Michael Ondaatje. Packed with fun goodies it was a great summer read.

*Novel: Warlight by Michael Ondaatje

As lovers of Ondaatje’s writing we wanted to share this magnificent piece of literature with you. As the narrator, Nathaniel says, “We order our lives with barely held stories,” and Warlight is a novel of stories and lives pieced together in post-WWII London. We see adventure, suspense, and at it’s essence, a story of a young boy growing up, then piecing together his mother’s life after her death.

If this is your first Ondaatje novel you will find yourself caught up in his poetic style, but perhaps at times overwhelmed by detail and imagery. Take your time, soak in the words and revel in the story.

The items we chose to pair with Warlight are designed to fit the setting and story. While Michael Ondaatje was born in Sri Lanka he is a Member of the Order of Canada

What’s in the box?

Peach and Rhubarb Tea – London Tea – Delicious hot or iced this Peach and Rhubarb tea is perfectly delicious.

Dry Gin Fizz Gummies - SugarSin - The classic British drink in a gummy is perfect for a summertime treat while reading Warlight. *Non-Alcoholic

V&A Ribbon Bookmark – Victoria & Albert Museum – The leading museum of art and design located in London designed these beautiful bookmarks. Assorted designs.

Warlight Candle – FromthePage – We love these custom candles made by Etsy Shop FromthePage ‘Candles for Bookish Souls’ - the perfect light to read by and a way to bring light to the shadow cast by war.

*Unwind Coaster – Cedar Mountain – We chose these coasters because they reminded us of time taken by Nathaniel’s mother (Rose) once she stepped away from being a spy. We hope they remind you to take a bit of ‘me time’ this summer.

*Sunflower Microgreens – Gift-a-Green – Nathaniel’s journey takes him to Marsh Felon as he works to piece together his mother’s life. We chose these greens as they represent; mailed letters, growing and gifts.
