WORDS IN DEEP BLUE has been honoured by the Children’s Book Council of Australia

October 27, 2017

Cath Crowley’s WORDS IN DEEP BLUE has received Honours in the Book of the Year – Older Reader’s Category.

The annual Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Book of the Year Awards affirm the quality of some of Australia’s most creative people. These awards are now amongst the most influential and highly respected in Australia.

This is a huge achievement for a very deserving author – big congratulations to Cath and the other winners!


Words In Deep Blue 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.
