The Bronte Plot

Katherine Reay

$19.99

Paperback
:

When a rare-books dealer goes to England, she discovers more than just the famous writing haunts-she discovers how to love and be loved in today's modern world.

Victoria Seward makes a living finding rare books through means that aren't always on the up-and-up. But if it makes the clients happy, who is she really hurting? After all, everything always turns out all right in the end. At least it does in her favorite books, the ones her absent father sends every year on her birthday, no matter where he is.

When her unorthodox behavior ruins her relationship with her boyfriend James, Victoria knows something has to change-she has to change. Enter Helen, a wealthy client seeking a companion for her trip to England to purchase antiques, and who just happens to be James's grandmother. Helen has secrets of her own, secrets that help her relate to Victoria more than anyone can guess.

As Victoria and Helen travel across England, Victoria suspects there is more to this trip than Helen lets on. When Helen's health falters, Victoria reaches out to James, reigniting feelings that were never truly extinguished.

Everything comes to a head at Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, when hidden offenses rise to the surface. Victoria's happy ending is within reach-if she can step out of the literary world and into the life that's been waiting for her all along.

Not Reay's Best
3 stars By Iola, Nov 14 2015
I don't see it as Christian fiction. Sure, Lucy and James don't sleep together, but nor is there any suggestion either of them (or any other characters) are people of faith (although it's pretty obvious the author is writing from a Christian world view). I would have liked to have seen more Christian aspects, although I guess that isn't Reay's style, and a Christian character who continually stretches the truth might have been a stretch to write believably and a stretch to read. As one character says:

"We're all wired to crave and worship something."

As Christians, we believe that 'something' is God, and we watch as people around us behave like some of the characters in this novel: chasing and craving and worshipping the wrong things. Not God.

Recommended to Bronte fans.
