Happy Persephone Secret Santa everyone! Today was finally the day that I got to open the parcel that has been sitting patiently on my desk.
Here it is, under flash in early morning light:
Wrapped so well! I love that only one piece of ribbon was used for the bow (I can’t do that, I’m terribly uncoordinated with gift wrapping). That print on the bookmark looks familiar…
Here is the lovely grey book inside – The Priory by Dorothy Whipple. It’s lovely and weighty, perfect for a holiday read. I haven’t read Dorothy Whipple before, but I’m looking forward to it. She is the author of several books in the Persephone series, including Greenbanks.
Finally, the card, which confirmed my suspicions about my Secret Santa (I hope that I’m correct):
I believe it to be Care of Care’s Online Book Club. (Your last clue with the cryptic letters in purple helped a lot). Thank you Care! You have made my first Persephone Secret Santa a really fun event (which got my entire office involved!). I loved the clues and the postcards – happy holidays and all the best!
What did your Persephone Secret Santa bring you? Merry Christmas all!
