A Novel of Old Books, Unexpected Love, and Jane AustenDownloadable Audiobook - 2014
Book lover and Austen enthusiast Sophie Collingwood has recently taken a job at an antiquarian bookshop in London when two different customers request a copy of the same obscure book: the second edition of 'Little Book of Allegories' by Richard Mansfield. Their queries draw Sophie into a mystery that will cast doubt on the true authorship of 'Pride and Prejudice', and ultimately threaten Sophie's life. In a dual narrative that alternates between Sophie's quest to uncover the truth--while choosing between two suitors--and a young Jane Austen's touching friendship with the aging cleric Richard Mansfield, Lovett weaves a romantic, suspenseful, and utterly compelling novel about love in all its forms and the joys of a life lived in books.
