Lost For Words

(2017)
A novel by

 
A bookshop keeps many secrets . . .

Loveday Cardew prefers books to people. If you look closely, you might glimpse the first lines of the novels she loves most tattooed on her skin. But there are things she'll never show you.

Fifteen years ago Loveday lost all she knew and loved in one unspeakable night. Now, she finds refuge in the unique little York bookshop where she works.

Everything is about to change for Loveday. Someone knows about her past. Someone is trying to send her a message. And she can't hide any longer.

Lost for Words is a compelling, irresistible and heart-rending novel, with the emotional intensity of The Shock of the Fall and all the charm of The Little Paris Bookshop and 84 Charing Cross Road.

Praise for Lost for Words:

'Loveday is a compelling character, you love her in the way you love a cat who always scratches but you love it anyway . . . this book is quirky, clever and unputdownable. I really enjoyed it.'

Katie Fforde

'Loveday is a marvellous character and she captured my heart from the very first page . . . and her bookshop is the bookshop of readers' dreams.'
Julie Cohen, bestselling author of Dear Thing

'Loveday is so spiky and likeable. I so loved Archie, Nathan and the book shop and the unfolding mystery'
Carys Bray, author of A Song For Issy Bradley and The Museum of You

'Burns fiercely with love and hurt. A quirky, rare and beautiful novel, one you'd be delighted to unearth in any bookshop. And Loveday Cardew is a character who leaps from the pages into our hearts.'
Linda Green, bestselling author of While My Eyes Were Closed

'It is such a beautiful read and Loveday's voice is so compelling . . . an exquisite story that I couldn't put down.'
Liz Fenwick

'Beautifully written and atmospheric. Loveday is an endearing heroine, full of attitude and fragility. The haunting story of her past is brilliantly revealed.'
Tracy Rees, Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of Amy Snow

'What an absolute stunner of a book. I LOVED it and cried like a motherf***er. If you care about books (or humans) read it!'
Shelley Harris, author of Jubilee
