A Town Called Solace Book Box

A Town Called Solace Book Box

Book: A Town Called Solaceย ๐Ÿ

In a world where we could all use some Solace comes the remarkable story of Rose, Liam, Elizabeth and Moses and the ties that bind them together. Set in the 1970โ€™s the novel begins with a runaway 16-year-old, and a new man moving to town. From there, the novel explores how family, grief and love come in many forms. Mary Lawson is a gifted Canadian writer. Her novels have remarkable characters, relatable Canadian settings and tell stories we love. We know you will love this novel too.

The items in this box were carefully chosen to represent Canada and small-town living. Each item is from a Canadian company.

What is in the box?

Letter from Mary Lawson โ€“ A beautiful letter from the author is included.

This handmade soap bar (with a biodegradable, plantable seed paper label) is a divine way to get your morning started. ๐Ÿ

Hamburger Spices and Poutine Mix - Gourmet du Village - Hamburgers and Poutine became a mainstay in Liamโ€™s diet and a way to measure the days and passage of time. ย We included these mixes as a fun tribute to the local restaurant and some yummy meals when BBQ season comes to your part of Canada.ย ๐Ÿย 

Waffle Dishtowel โ€“ Danica โ€“ A soft dishtowel to bring Canadian pride to your kitchen. We loved the vintage feel and styling of this towel and imaged it would fit perfectly in the kitchens of Solace.ย  ๐Ÿ

The Henna Artist Book Box

The Henna Artist Book Box

Novel: The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi

We loved this novel because it was a window into a different period, place and time. While based in the 1950s the novelsโ€™ themes still resonate today dealing with womenโ€™s rights, socio-economic issues, violence against women, self-love, and family. We hope you will become as engrossed in this novel as we were. The sensory journey through India Joshi takes us on is one-of-a-kind.

Whatโ€™s in the box?

Henna Temporary Tattoo โ€“ Compliments of Harper Collins Canada โ€“ A fun way to celebrate The Henna Artist *

Lavender Shortbread โ€“ Sprucewood Handmade Cookie Co. โ€“ Lavender is used by Lakshimi throughout the novel in her treatment of the women she sees. We love these delicious local shortbread cookies with a hint of lavender โ€“ igniting your senses with every bite. *

Seduction Organic Chai โ€“ Tea Leaf Co. - Chai features prominently in Indian culture. We chose this tea to connect to the act of seduction in the novel and Lakshimiโ€™s practice. *

Mango Curry Dip Mix โ€“ Gourmet du Village โ€“ The flavours of this dip and scents reminded us of Indian food. We hope you enjoy making this as the perfect snack accompaniment to your read. Serve with vegetables or crackers. *

Mandala Mirror โ€“ Kikkerland โ€“ Mandalas are representative of a spiritual journey and the concept that life is never-ending. Translated from Sanskrit to be circle this mirror offers an opportunity for reflection and self-care.
