The Bronte Plot

Lucy lives in a world of books and antiques and it is very Jane Austen.  At the very beginning of a relationship which could possibly be the "one" her slightly unorthodox methods of handling business puts her future in jeopardy not just with James but with Sid her boss and mentor whom she adores.

An unexpected business trip to England with Helen who is James's grandmother brings the whole to crisis point. Helen has secrets of her own. Secrets which she has kept for sixty years and her choice of Lucy as a companion is no random choice. As the story of both Helen and Lucy unravel, will they both find peace the way they each want and will James ever forgive her.

This is a tale surrounding literature that in the end is about leaving the past behind and moving toward the future. This is a great introduction to some of English literature's finest works and perfect for a book club selection. A delightful story, the literature, the conversations about literature and the literary places they visited in England.  The only drawback is that the main character’s romance was non-existent, especially in light of the story being about books on romance, but still a good read.

I received a digital copy of this book from  Thomas Nelson-Fiction  through Net Galley for my review.
