October 2017 Box featuring Faithful by Alice Hoffman.
We first read a novel by Alice Hoffman many years ago and loved her mixture of magic and storytelling. Faithful is set in one of our favourite cities (NYC) and features a young woman searching for herself after an unthinkable tragedy.
Not only will you love Shelby’s unique journey through life you will be captivated by her search to understand how one woman comes to terms with the events of her past so she can take on the future.
What’s in the box?
Kyoto Coffee - Americans love their coffee and this story takes place in New York City. We chose a favourite local roaster, Kyoto Coffee for the beverage this month. We know you will love this delicious, smooth, no aftertaste brew while enjoying Faithful. www.kyotocoffee.ca
Templeman’s Toffees- We fell in love with this confection when we first tried it. As the main character is fond of Chinese food we chose a toffee with cashews, which are often found in Chinese dishes. www.templemans.ca
Little Blue House by Hatley “Tiny Blue Labs” Crew Socks - From the moment Shelby steals another woman’s dogs, to her ongoing love of animals these socks are the answer to cold October days. http://littlebluehouse.com
Little Blue House by Hatley “Things to Fetch” – We could picture this on Shelby’s fridge as a reminder to keep organized in a fun way.
New York Magnetic Map - What better way to follow along Shelby’s journey than with this fun magnetic map of NYC. www.kikkerland.com
Fred “Mark My Words” bookmarks- What reader doesn’t need more bookmarks! These are cute, practical and fun. www.genuinefred.com
