The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay

Lucy lives in a world of books and antiques and it is very Jane Austen! I couldn't have asked for much more in a book. 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.

In a setting which crosses the pond, both American and English ways of business, life and history as well are detailed.
