"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"-- Provided by publisher.

An enjoyable read - bookshops, love, misunderstandings, travelling through the lands of Jane Austen, The Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens and many more.

I agree with the previous comment on 10-10-2016 that this is a sweet and predicable romance. I also agree with the 4-05-2016 comment that it took a while to get into then the heroin was disappointing. I finally stopped on page 176 and shipped to the end.

Fun and clean romance novel--a treat if you want something sweet (and a little predictable).

I preferred Keay's previous two novels to this one. I found the story took quite a while to get into, and just as I was beginning to like the main character, she is shown to be deliberately deceptive. At which point, my sympathies move to the boyfriend and my hope that they do not get back together. The ending was equally unsatisfying.

"Sometimes one has to go back in order to move forward." Lucy and Helen are on their own journeys together. The references to many of the classics piques the interest to read them or read them again. Enjoyable read.
