Book Fairies hide Messy Wonderful Us on paperback release day

Messy, Wonderful Us is hidden by book fairies in Liverpool and beyond

The Book Fairies celebrated the paperback release of Catherine Isaac’s Messy, Wonderful Us by hiding copies in the author’s home town!

Cilla Black holds two books for lucky finders in the Cavern Quarter, Liverpool.

Preparing to hide the books around Liverpool

Catherine Isaac (who previously wrote under pseudonym Jane Costello) was born and still lives in Liverpool, UK. So it only made sense that many of the copies we had were hidden around her home town!

About the book:

In late 1983, a letter arrives from Italy, containing secrets so unthinkable that it is hidden away, apparently forever. More than three decades later, it is found . . . by the last person who was ever supposed to see it.

When Allie opens an envelope in her grandmother’s house, it changes everything she knows about her family – and herself.

With the truth liable to hurt those she loves most, she hires a private detective to find out what happened to her late mother in the summer before Allie was born. Taking leave from her job as a research scientist, she is led to the sun-drenched shores of Lake Garda, accompanied by her best friend Ed.

But the secrets that emerge go far beyond anything they were expecting. Now, Allie must find the courage to confront her family’s tangled past and reshape her own future.
