Description
As the last descendant of the Brontė family, Samantha Whipple is used to stirring up speculation wherever she goes. When her father dies, she is the presumed heir to a long-rumored trove of diaries, letters, and early novel drafts passed down from the Brontė family—a hidden fortune never revealed to anyone outside of the family, but endlessly speculated about by literary scholars and fanatics. In Catherine Lowell's debut novel, Samantha enrolls at Oxford, but is baffled when a hand-annotated novel that belonged to her father turns up. As other long-lost family heirlooms appear, Samantha and her handsome yet inscrutable professor turn to the works of the Brontė sisters for clues.

"Catherine Lowell's terrific first novel is a mystery, a love story, and a very dark comedy with the Brontės, of all people, playing a role back there in the shadows. The book is about the traces that literature and our ancestors leave in us, and it is about memory as a token of love."—Charles Baxter

"A smart, clever and properly Gothic novel.... Deftly, Lowell combines a rollicking treasure hunt with a wickedly dark story."—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
