Sinossi

“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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Amazing! 6 giugno 2016
Di Hugh Watkins - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book takes great literature and weaves it with a modern story of finding yourself and recognizing and fixing mistakes. Beautifully written, full of humor, amazing writing, and a underlying story that makes your heart ache with sadness and knowledge of the feelings portrayed. Full of references to Bronte and Austin, this novel will make you relish the time with the loved ones in your life. Silly stated, this book is the reason people keep reading, to find unknown books that should be read by everyone. Katherine Reay is an author to keep your eye on. A beautiful writer with tons of talent.

3.0 su 5 stelle Good characters but poor plot and pacing 17 novembre 2015
Di Kate Unger - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This book is hard to review. There were parts that I really enjoyed, but other parts where I was really confused about what was happening. The pacing did not work for me at all. It felt like this book should have been a sequel, but instead Katherine Reay rushed the beginning to get to the story she really wanted to be telling.

It starts off with Lucy, who works in an antique/decorating shop in Chicago. She manages the book selling business within the shop and assists the owner/designer with house decorating jobs. James comes into her shop several times to buy books, and they start up a relationship. I really wanted more time with their courtship. It could have been a whole book. I enjoyed their shared bookishness. It was a glimpse of what it would be like to be with someone who shared that love. But the way it was written was very confusing. They'd mention things as if they'd already been discussed, but the reader had no knowledge of them. I honestly don't know how long their relationship was supposed to have gone on until James finds out about something dishonest that Lucy has done.

Then it all falls apart, except that Lucy is invited on a trip to England by James' grandmother. This story is the one I really enjoyed. When Reay wasn't discussing decorating or literary references, which were over my head since I haven't read the Bronte sisters' books (except Jane Erye), she told the story of an older woman full of regret who was trying to right the wrongs of her past. Helen also wanted honesty at the end of her life, and her conversations with Lucy were so real and enjoyable. But unfortunately, there wasn't enough of that story line.

James and Lucy's relationship, which I honestly didn't care very much about, kept muddling up the story. Had this been a sequel, I would have been invested in their story. But the rushed romance at the beginning of the book didn't do enough to make me want these two characters to end up together. The small bit of romance between the chauffeur and the inn keeper would have been enough for me.

Overall this is a sweet and quiet novel with good characters but poor plot and pacing. I loved Reay's other Austen-inspired novels, so I was disappointed that this one didn't work for me. Maybe fans of the Brontes would like it more?

5.0 su 5 stelle You can't go wrong with Katherine Reay - LOVED this one! 4 novembre 2015
Di Jamie from Books and Beverages - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
“I mean that reading forms your opinions, your worldview, especially childhood reading, and anything that does that has an impact. So call them friends, call some stories enemies if you want, but don’t deny their influence.”

This quote is one of many I absolutely loved from this novel and shows just how perfect this book is for readers who love books and understand that books are more than just words on paper. And once again Katherine Reay has released a book I will love over and over again.

As I said, this is a book for book lovers – it felt like I could sit with Helen or Lucy and chat for hours about our favorite Austen scenes or movie remakes of Jane Eyre. This story and journey understands me. You know those types of books?

Not only for book lovers, but this is a story about journeys, and not just Lucy’s.

“Hope is a hard thing to share.”

It’s a journey of discovery (with a lovely nod to another C.S. Lewis classic) and the people you meet along the way. I really liked Lucy and James. I also loved Helen, Dillion, Bette, and Sid. So yeah, pretty much the entire supporting cast. Have I mentioned her awesome use of classic literature quotes? Even when they were from a book I haven’t read, I loved it.

Life is an incredible journey and this book helped me to appreciate that again. This book is one in which you feel, not only for the characters, but your own life.

“Don’t hang on to the past so tightly you taint the future.”

And as she does so so brilliantly, classic literature references make this novel even more delightful. Now I desperately need to go on an English literary tour and read (or re-read) all the classics. This is yet another amazing winning novel from Katherine and y’all need to go buy it :).

Is there a book about books you love?

With Courage to Endure

(Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review)

4.0 su 5 stelle A good read on a rainy day 29 maggio 2017
Di Glynn Young - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Lucy Alling works for one of the top interior design firms in Chicago. With the owner’s support, she has begun to expand his business by adding antique books. She especially loves the Victorians – the Bronte sisters, Mrs. Gaskell (who wrote a biography of Charlotte Bronte), George Eliot, Herman Melville, Robert Louis Stevenson, and many others.

She received her love for reading from her father, and she especially loved his reading of the Beatrix Potter stories. But her father had long ago abandoned the family, and Lucy’s only contact is a book sent each year on her birthday. But from her mother, she knows that her father operates just the other side of the law.

Through the design store, she meets James Carmichael, a young attorney who shares Lucy’s love for reading. She helps him find book gifts for his family that contain special inscriptions. It is a relationship blossoming into love – until James discovers that Lucy has been writing the inscriptions herself and passing them off as the work of others – and bumping the price of the book up a bit. Their relationship blows up. And then James’s grandmother steps in, asking Lucy to accompany her to England on a buying trip – and to return something she stole decades before.

Published in 2015, “The Bronte Plot” by Katherine Reay is a romance constructed around classic books, and especially those of Charlotte and Emily Bronte. It’s not a contemporary retelling of either “Jane Eyre” or “Wuthering Heights,” but it is certainly infused with a love and appreciation of those works.

Reay received her B.A. and M.S. degrees from Northwestern University. She is the author of “Dear Mr. Knightley” (2013); “Lizzy & Jane” (2014); “A Portrait of Emily Price” (2016); and the forthcoming “The Austen Escape” (November).

The publisher, Thomas Nelson, is a Christian publisher, but “The Bronte Plot” makes the themes of faith and forgiveness more subtle than one might expect from “Christian fiction.” It’s clearly there – Lucy will have to face the sins of her father, and, more importantly, her own sins, which extend beyond writing a few inscriptions in old books.

This was a good read on a very rainy day.

This is a cute & fun read that will make you want to rediscover British literature - Woolf, Austen, Potter, of course the Bronte sisters & more. And, if you've never taken a journey though these authors - do so! Your life will be the better for it - promise. It will also make you want to visit London (& its surrounding areas) & take the many pilgrimages of these authors' lives.

This book does take you on a trip to London, but it also takes you on the journey of a young woman trying to improve her life by reconciling the past & moving beyond who she thinks she's destined to be. There is a handsome suitor too in the wings (there would have to be with a title like "The Bronte Plot"!).

Do our genes/family histories always predetermine our path & if so, how do we break ties & chains that really need to be broken?

Who do you want to be like when you "grow up"?
