Summary
  • "A debut novel about the last remaining descendant of the Brontës who discovers that her recently deceased father has left her a treasure hunt that may lead to the long-rumored secret literary estate"--
  • Since Samantha Whipple's father died, she is the presumed heir to a long-rumored trove of diaries, paintings, letters, and early novel drafts passed down from the Brontë family-- a trove which may be just another fiction. When Samantha enrolls at Oxford University, long lost objects from the past begin rematerializing in her life. Her father’s distinctive copy of Jane Eyre, which should have perished in the fire that claimed his life, is the first of many clues in an elaborate scavenger hunt derived from the world's greatest literature
Summary
The last surviving descendant of the Brontë family searches for her ancestor's long-rumored secret estate with the help of a handsome Oxford professor using clues left behind by her late, eccentric father and the Brontë's novels.
