The Book Drop “The Jane” Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Ice Cream

The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street by Susan Jane Gilman – Retail Value $15 (On Amazon for $11.31)

Book Summary from Amazon:

As a child in 1913, Malka Treynovsky flees Russia for New York with her family–only to be crippled and abandoned in the streets. Taken in by a tough-loving Italian ices peddler, Malka survives. When she falls in love with Albert, they set off together across America in an ice cream truck to seek their fortune; slowly, she transforms herself into Lillian Dunkle, “The Ice Cream Queen of America”–doyenne of an empire of ice cream franchises and a celebrated television personality.

Spanning 70 years, Lillian’s rise–fraught with setbacks, triumphs, and tragedies–is inextricably linked to the course of American history itself, from Prohibition to the disco days of Studio 54. And when her past starts catching up with her, her world implodes spectacularly.

This box also came with an Indie Bound flyer for additional book recommendations.

Verdict: In previous reviews for this box I mentioned that I love the concept of getting a curated book pick each month, but the value isn’t that great. But this month the bonus book makes the value so much better! I really hope they continue to add bonus books or items in future boxes – I will definitely keep subscribing!
