The Bronte Plot
By Katherine Reay
Release Date: November 3, 2015Lucy Alling makes a living selling rare books, often taking suspicious measures to reach her goals. When her unorthodox methods are discovered, Lucy's secret ruins her relationship with her boss and her boyfriend James—leaving Lucy in a heap of hurt, and trouble. Something has to change; she has to change.
In a sudden turn of events, James's wealthy grandmother Helen hires Lucy as a consultant for a London literary and antiques excursion. Lucy reluctantly agrees and soon discovers Helen holds secrets of her own. In fact, Helen understands Lucy's predicament better than anyone else.
As the two travel across England, Lucy benefits from Helen's wisdom, as Helen confronts the ghosts of her own past. Everything comes to a head at Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, where Lucy is reminded of the sisters' beloved heroines, who, with tenacity and resolution, endured—even in the midst of change.
Now Lucy must go back into her past in order to move forward. And while it may hold mistakes and regrets, she will prevail—if only she can step into the life that's been waiting for her all along.
I had no idea that Katherine Reay had a new book coming out so soon! Her previous books have been based off of Jane Austen's novels and I am so excited for her newest one to come out! I love the Brontes and the main character of this book sells rare books! How cool is that? From the summary, I'm not sure how much romance will be in this one, but it sounds like the main character has a lot of reflecting to do on her life! And Helen sounds like a great character to help her along the way. Can't wait to read this one!
