Win our Book Club in a Box for Into The World

This is a compelling novel of the amazing life of Marie-Louise Girardin, an unwed mother who disguised herself as man to work onboard the Recherche for a perilous sea expedition. Set in 1791, against the background of the French revolution, Into the World is a suspenseful and cathartic journey into an unknown world as seen through the eyes of a woman with an undefeatable spirit and love for her son. 



In our Book Club in a Box you'll find:

  • 10 copies of Into The World
  • A bottle of red and a bottle of white wine
  • Crisps (we’ll make sure they’re nice ones)
  • Conversation starters (questions and information) about Into The World
  • How to start a book club sheet (would-be book club organisers look no further!) 
  • Recipe for Bouillabaisse
  • Cocktail recipe for The Colour Blue

To enter, fill in the form below and tell us about your book club. How many members does it have, what kinds of books do you read, how often do you meet, and anything else you’d like to share.



"Stephanie Parkyn brings her characters to life with authentic voices and her descriptions of 18th-century people, places and events form the basis of the book’s well-developed narrative. Into the World is an interesting and enjoyable debut that will have readers anticipating the author’s next novel."
