Wishes & Consequences

A Plots & PossibiliTeas Box

Clara was born with a gift to see beyond the veil and act as a conduit between the living and the Enigma, powerful beings from the beyond who can grant wishes…for a price.

And as much as she wants to warn others of the dangers of asking for everything their heart desires, her own wish, granted to save her life, has made her a pawn for the Enigma and stuck in a cycle of guilt and regret.

When the chance arrives for her to free herself from the consequences of that wish, she pursues it, but she’ll soon have to choose between saving herself or those she cares about most and her entire community.

Set in the 1920’s this book combines history and magic in a way we’ve never experienced before. And the author has taken real people and real events and woven them into an unforgettable story.

What's Inside This Box?

The Book

Washington D. C., 1925


Clara Johnson talks to spirits, a gift that saved her during her darkest moments in a Washington D. C. jail. Now a curse that’s left her indebted to the cunning spirit world. So, when the Empress, the powerful spirit who holds her debt, offers her an opportunity to gain her freedom, a desperate Clara seizes the chance. The task: steal a magical ring from the wealthiest woman in the District.


Clara can’t pull off this daring heist alone. She’ll need help from an unlikely team, from a jazz musician capable of hypnotizing with a melody to an aging vaudeville actor who can change his face, to pull off the impossible. But as they encounter increasingly difficult obstacles, a dangerous spirit interferes at every turn. Conflict in the spirit world is leaking into the human one and along D.C’.s legendary Black Broadway, a mystery unfolds—one that not only has repercussions for Clara but all of the city’s residents.

The Goodies

Mental Clarity Tea

This tea not only reminded of us the main character, Clara, but also of her ability to see the world and the people in it was such clarity. Made with yerba mate, lemongrass, peppermint, ginkgo biloba and rosemary, a cup of this in the morning will keep you alert and focused.

Orange Peel Honey Cubes

Honey is simply sweet, but much like Clara when she wore the dresses Henry picked out for her, a little bit of fancy can help you see it in a whole new way. Drop one of these little cubes in your tea, coffee, or cocktail for a little bit of fancy sweetness!

Biodegradable Tea Bags

Uncle Nazareth probably wouldn’t be caught dead putting his tea in a bag…can’t read the leaves that way. But on the off chance you prefer to just drink your tea, we’ve included some biodegradable tea bags. Just fill to your preference and steep.

Chocolate Caramel Cookie Squares

Michel et Augustin

Much like Israel proves to be a good partner for Clara, these buttery shortbread cookies topped with caramel and chocolate are the perfect pairing for a cup of tea.
