Summary
In this delightful debut, a sweet romance, Politano pens a clever story-within-a-story full of Victorian intrigue and ghosts. Aurelie Harcourt's father has just died, and she is leaving the only home she has ever known, Shepton Mallet debtor's prison, with the few things he left her: a trunk full of blank notebooks and his pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Initially planning to abandon his unfinished serial novel, Lady Jayne Disappears,which she has been transcribing for years, Aurelie decides, instead, to continue her father's work when she realizes that her Aunt Eudora's home, Lynhurst Manor, is the setting of her father's fiction. Lady Jayne was Aurelie's mother, and staying in the family home gives her the chance to try to uncover what really happened to her. But not everyone wants the family secrets revealed. Older readers who miss the great gothic romances of Victoria Holt, Phyllis Whitney, and Mary Stewart will enjoy Politano's tale, as will readers looking for a chaste romance. Also recommend to readers who enjoy Lauren Willig's historical romances.--Quillen, C. L. Copyright 2017 Booklist
