Persephone Secret Santa Revealed!

I participated, along with other bloggers, in the Persephone Secret Santa, where bloggers gave the gift of Persephone books. Persephone is a UK publisher known for publishing rediscovered /overlooked early and mid-20th century books with beautiful dove-grey covers. My Secret Santee was Amy of The House of Seven Tails, which had the happy side-effect of introducing me to a new-to-me blogger. I picked out Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Making of a Marchioness for Amy. I haven’t read it myself, but I’ve heard good things in the blogosphere about it.

And I just discovered today that my Secret Santa is Frances of Nonsuch Books. I’m thrilled because I met Frances at a gathering of D.C. area book bloggers last month, and she is one of the ones who persuaded me into joining the Persephone Secret Santa. Frances has suggested – since we live quite near each other – that she and I get together later this week, and she will present the gift in person and we can chat over coffee or tea. So that is the plan. What a lovely surprise!
