While The Other Windsor Girl is a work of fiction we felt that Georgie Blalock honestly captured the essence of Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret in this book. When the Princess and The Honourable Vera Strathmore cross paths as young women adventure ensues. As readers, we bear witness to their fascinating and sometimes tumultuous relationship, feeling like we were living every moment with them. An engaging novel we believe will be the perfect read this January.
What’s in the box?
Assorted Fudge - Cartwright and Butler - We wanted a real extraordinary English confection for this box and this fudge is perfect. The hard part will be not eating it all in one sitting! One of three delectable flavours will appear in your box.
*Winter Chai – Pluck Tea - Any book that is set in England has to have a great “cuppa” to accompany it. We hope you enjoy this wonderful winter tea to keep you warm. Toronto based Pluck Tea paired with local chocolate maker Chocosol to create this special blend.
Corgi Socks – Socksmith - Although Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is probably better known for loving Corgis we couldn’t resist these cute socks. A cute pair of Corgi love socks for curling up with your novel.
*Casablanca Mug - Now Designs - We loved the elegant design of this mug and felt it was as close to a proper English teacup as we could get but still be sturdy enough to ship to your home. A lovely white and blue mug that is ideal for your favourite winter beverage.
Ridley’s Games Gin Rummy - Wild and Wolf –Princess Margaret may have preferred vodka as her drink of choice but these Gin themed playing cards tie back to her mother who was known to enjoy a few Gin and Dubonet in her time. Perfect for a games night in your parlour.
