‘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
