The Book Fairies found perfect spots from Perth to Brisbane and everywhere in between!
The fairies found such great locations at which to leave copies of The Husbands by Chandler Baker today! We hope that the lucky finders will enjoy their new read!
Even those fairies currently in lockdown took books out on their daily walk – and the response was INCREDIBLE, with finders commenting on how special it was that they had the chance to read a new book in lockdown!
The number of Street Libraries that our Australian book fairies were able to find is astonishing! Have a look at #TBFHusbands on instagram to see allllll the photos.
Mini Book Fairies in Australia!
It’s always a delight to see mini book fairies start out on their book fairy journey – and this event gave us TWO new recruits! These little ones did a wonderful job hiding copies of The Husbands, and even dressed up with fairy wings! Getting children involved with book fairy business shows them how fun the act of GIVING is – and they love being given the role of Location Coordinator as they find the BEST spots to hide books!
About the book:
Chandler Baker, the New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network, is back with The Husbands, a novel that asks: to what lengths will a woman go for a little more help from her husband?
Nora Spangler is a successful attorney but when it comes to domestic life, she packs the lunches, schedules the doctor appointments, knows where the extra paper towel rolls are, and designs and orders the holiday cards. Her husband works hard, too… but why does it seem like she is always working so much harder?
When the Spanglers go house hunting in Dynasty Ranch, an exclusive suburban neighborhood, Nora meets a group of high-powered women–a tech CEO, a neurosurgeon, an award-winning therapist, a bestselling author–with enviably supportive husbands. When she agrees to help with a resident’s wrongful death case, she is pulled into the lives of the women there. She finds the air is different in Dynasty Ranch. The women aren’t hanging on by a thread.
But as the case unravels, Nora uncovers a plot that may explain the secret to having-it-all. One that’s worth killing for. Calling to mind a Stepford Wives gender-swap, The Husbands imagines a world where the burden of the “second shift” is equally shared–and what it may take to get there.
