‘Passion’ is the perfect word for author, Marion Day. She is passionate about everything – life, nature, photography, good food. And pulling all this together is her love of writing. A veritable ‘feast’ in seven stunning parts – not only does the book showcase author Marion Day’s life with her partner Steve Podjursky in Clova Bay, a remote area of outstanding natural beauty in the Marlborough Sounds, but it is a story of local history and everyday life, as well as a stunning pictorial journal of this iconic area in all its breathtaking beauty. Come along as Marion shares it with us.
The book revolves around three ideas:
|Living – A superb insight into life away from the hustle and bustle of cities, noise, and traffic|
|Feasting – Allows the reader to enjoy Marion’s favourite dishes using local natural foods caught or grown on her doorstep, and to learn how to use some unusual ingredients|
|Writing – Marion’s narrative, interspersed with her wonderful anecdotes, short stories and poems, draws the reader into her remarkable life.|
Marion has the knack of reaching her target audience with uplifting text and magnificent photos and detail. This is another example of her attention to detail, and I expect this coffee table publication will be another top seller for her. As always, I'm happy to sell it; it's another good one. - Jenny Johnston, owner and manager, Paper Plus Opotiki
