I was delighted when Rosie Margesson, publicity officer at Headline got in touch to ask me if I’d like to participate in the cover reveal for The Missing Pieces of Nancy Moon by Sarah Steele as it looks exactly my kind of read.
The Missing Pieces of Nancy Moon will be published by Headline on 6th August 2020 and is available for pre-order here.
Let me tell you all about it:
The Missing Pieces of Nancy Moon
To unravel the story of that long-lost summer, she had to follow the thread…
Florence Connelly is broken-hearted; her beloved grandmother has just died and her marriage has collapsed.
But things change when she opens a box of vintage 1960s dress patterns, discovered inside her grandmother’s wardrobe. Inside each pattern packet is a fabric swatch, a postcard from Europe and a faded photograph of a young woman wearing the hand-made dress. Why did Flo’s grandmother never speak of this mysterious woman – Nancy Moon?
Her life in tatters, Flo decides to remake Nancy’s dresses, and to head across to the Continent to re-create Nancy’s Grand Tour of 1962. As she follows the thread, Flo begins to unravel an untold story of love and loss in her family’s past. And perhaps to stitch the pieces of her own life back together…
Doesn’t that sound just gorgeous? I’m so looking forward to reading The Missing Pieces of Nancy Moon.
