“You’re going to love The Brontë Plot.” —Debbie Macomber
When Lucy’s secret is unearthed, her world begins to crumble. But it may be the best thing that has ever happened to her.
Lucy Alling makes a living selling rare books, often taking suspicious liberties to reach her goals. When her unorthodox methods are discovered, Lucy’s secret ruins her relationship with her boss and her boyfriend, James—leaving Lucy in a heap of hurt and trouble. Something has to change; she has to change.
In a sudden turn of events, James’s wealthy grandmother, Helen, hires Lucy as a consultant for a London literary and antiques excursion. Lucy reluctantly agrees and soon discovers Helen holds secrets of her own. In fact, Helen understands Lucy’s predicament better than anyone else.
As the two travel across England, Lucy benefits from Helen’s wisdom as Helen confronts ghosts from her own past. Everything comes to a head at Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, where Lucy is reminded of the sisters’ beloved heroines who, with tenacity and resolution, endured—even in the midst of impossible circumstances.
Now Lucy must face her past in order to move forward. And while it may hold mistakes and regrets, she will prevail—if only she can step into the life that’s been waiting for her all along.
Praise for The Bronte Plot audiobook:
"Audiobook enthusiasts of Victorian literature will love hearing this romantic story of a Chicago vintage bookseller, Lucy, who ends up in love and tours literary haunts in the English Lake District with her lover's grandmother. Lucy primarily has a Midwestern accent but sometimes uses English phrases and pronunciations because her deadbeat father was English. Creating the perfect rendition of Lucy seems to come effortlessly to narrator Laura Kirman, who is skilled at voicing both English and American parts. No bleeding corpses in his narrative, just flawed characters righting wrongs and communing with literary Victorians." —Audiofile
