Our special 2nd Anniversary box had some exciting items in it!
Novel: The Nanny by Gilly MacMillan
The Nanny is the perfect novel for October. A complex thriller with twists that had us speeding through the novel to find out what really happened. When Jocelyn was seven her nanny, Hannah, left unexpectedly causing a devastating loss. Thirty years later Jocelyn has returned home to England with her daughter Ruby to live with Jo’s mother Lady Holt. Soon after arriving at Lake Hall estate a skull is found in the estate’s lake and the story takes off with all the women questioning everything they thought they knew about each other.
What’s in the box?
Zing Lemon & Ginger Tea - London Tea- A novel set in England needs a great tea to enjoy with it. We chose this Lemon Ginger Tea as a wonderful compliment to a cool fall day.
Choco Hippies Biscuits – Andre - Lady Holt and Ruby bake cookies (or biscuits) in the story. You will love these British biscuits as an accompaniment to the tea.
Pill Container - NPW- Pills are an important part of the plot. These convenient pill containers are great for purse or pocket to carry medications or vitamins.
Candle Holder - Creative Co-op - A large candlestick holder would be impractical to fit in the box. We found these charming candleholders that symbolize love. While there is a lot of love in this book, a lot of it is misguided.
*Tea Lights – Sewrustic - Fall scented tea lights are the perfect match for the candle holder. Maybe you could use them to set a Halloween atmosphere?
SRB Vinyl Sticker - To celebrate out anniversary we have included this sticker, which will look, great on your iPad, like the one Ruby uses to play games
*Wish Bracelet - Imperfectly Worthy – One of our all-time favourite items – the wish bracelet is a beautiful way to make a wish and wear your love of books. Our gift to you as we celebrate our 2nd Anniversary.
Pocket Mirror - NPW- A cigarette case plays a prominent role in the story and we wanted something that could represent this. Also with Lady Holt’s obsession with her looks, a pocket mirror made sense as something that she would always have close by.
