Our UK book fairies had a treat hiding copies of The Brontë Mysteries: The Vanished Bride in public places!
Searching for the right location for the Bride
Book Fairies always try to find the perfect spot to hide the right book, so these UK fairies found beautiful houses and gardens! Autumn helped too by adding an array of magical colour.
Find the best wedding ribbon!
Book fairies also think long and hard about which ribbon they will use! It’s so wonderful that on the occasion of hiding The Vanished Bride, there was such a variety of colour and texture when it came to wrapping those books.
The winning location: Brontë Parsonage Museum
Some fairies go above and beyond to match the book to the location – and you can’t get much better than the Brontë museum to hide a Brontë Sisters’ mystery! We hope that a lucky visitor to the museum enjoyed finding one of these book fairy gifts.
About the book:
Before they became legendary writers, Charlotte Brontë, Emily Brontë, and Anne Brontë were detectors in this charming historical mystery… Yorkshire, 1845. A young wife and mother has gone missing from her home, leaving behind two small children and a large pool of blood. Just a few miles away, a humble parson’s daughters—the Brontë sisters—learn of the crime. Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë are horrified and intrigued by the mysterious disappearance.
These three creative, energetic, and resourceful women quickly realize that they have all the skills required to make for excellent “lady detectors.” Not yet published novelists, they have well-honed imaginations and are expert readers. And, as Charlotte remarks, “detecting is reading between the lines—it’s seeing what is not there.” As they investigate, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne are confronted with a society that believes a woman’s place is in the home, not scouring the countryside looking for clues. But nothing will stop the sisters from discovering what happened to the vanished bride, even as they find their own lives are in great peril…

Would you like to join the book fairies?
We want to get to a point where half of the world’s population is a book fairy, and the other half are finding the books they leave. Now, we are quite far off that target at the moment but one more fairy can always help! Here are the goodies – you only really need the stickers but the rest is pretty cool, too 🙂
