Second-hand bookshops are full of mysteries...

This is a love story.

It's the story of Howling Books, where readers write letters to strangers, to lovers, to poets, to words.

It's the story of Henry Jones and Rachel Sweetie. They were best friends once, before Rachel moved to the sea.

Now, she's back, working at the bookstore, grieving for her brother Cal. She's looking for the future in the books people love, and the words that they leave behind.

Sometimes you need the poets

The new novel from the award-winning author of Graffiti Moon.

"Words in Deep Blue is a beautiful examination of grief, love and the power of words. Told in a dual narrative and littered with excerpts from letters and notes left in books at the shop, Cath Crowley has created a sweeping story about self-discovery and growing up, filled with complicated and flawed characters ... this is a love letter to books and bookshops, to the ocean, to falling in love and finding your way." - Bookseller+Publisher

  • Heartbreaking story

    by on

    This is a story of so many different types of loss (every character seems to be experiencing some kind of loss without saying too much). It perfectly captures when a young life ends and all the potential for love and happiness are lost, never to be realised and just how sad that really is. A beautiful book. This book is YA in genre but could be read by anyone from teenage to adult.

  • Perfect

    by on

    This novel is perfect for anyone who loves books, reading and bookshops. It's a treat from beginning to end.
