By turns life-affirming, heart-wrenching and joyful, A Blanket of Stars is a breath-taking novel about one woman's journey to understand the secrets in her family's past, and to save the friend who means everything to her.
Allie was five when her mum Christine died, leaving devoted Joe to raise her single-handedly, at the heart of a close family.
Now, 28 years later, Allie has stumbled upon something that has rocked everything she thinks she knows about herself. Taking leave from her job as a research scientist, she sets off to northern Italy with her best friend Ed, determined to uncover the truth.
But the secrets that unravel as the sun beats down on Lake Garda concern more than her family's past. And the two friends are forced to confront questions about their own life-long relationship that are impossible to resolve.
Catherine Isaac's latest novel, following the highly acclaimed You Me Everything, is a sweeping love story with an unforgettable twist.
