Our UK book fairies were so happy to hide hardback copies of Sarah Steele’s debut novel, The Missing Pieces of Nancy Moon, in some incredible locations!
The Book Fairies of the UK celebrated their first week back hiding books with this very special book launch! Author Sarah Steele was delighted to see copies of her very first novel hidden up and down the UK.
About the book:
If you love taking a journey with the novels of Kristin Hannah or Kathryn Hughes, this novel is for you. To unravel that long-lost summer, she had to follow the thread… Florence Connelly is broken hearted. Her marriage has collapsed under the weight of the loss she shares with her husband, and her beloved grandmother has just died.
Even the joy she found in dressmaking is gone. But things change when Flo opens a box of vintage 1960s dress patterns found inside her grandmother’s wardrobe.
Inside each pattern packet is a fabric swatch, a postcard from Europe and a photograph of a mysterious young woman, Nancy Moon, wearing the hand-made dress. Flo discovers that Nancy was a distant relation who took the boat train to Paris in 1962 and never returned.
With no one to stay home for, Flo decides to follow Nancy’s thread.
She unravels an untold story of love and loss in her family’s past. And begins to stitch the pieces of her own life back together.
Our UK book fairies dressed up these gorgeous new books from Headline with our classic green sticker on the front, sometimes a bookmark, and some really beautiful ribbon! The great thing about a cover and plot like this one is that ribbon is more than welcome – and fits well with the story, too!
