A thrilling literary mystery costarring Jane Austen from the New York Times-bestselling author of The Bookman's Tale. Charlie Lovett's new book, The Lost Book of the Grail, is now available. Book lover and Austen enthusiast Sophie Collingwood has recently taken a job at an antiquarian bookshop in London when two different customers request a copy of the same obscure book: the second edition of A Little Book of Allegories by Richard Mansfield. Their queries draw Sophie into a mystery that will cast doubt on the true authorship of Pride and Prejudice-and ultimately threaten Sophie's life. In a dual narrative that alternates between Sophie's quest to uncover the truth-while choosing between two suitors-and a young Jane Austen's touching friendship with the aging cleric Richard Mansfield, Lovett weaves a romantic, suspenseful, and utterly compelling novel about love in all its forms and the joys of a life lived in books.
