Summary
Since Samantha Whipple's father died, she is the presumed heir to a long-rumored trove of diaries, paintings, letters, and early novel drafts passed down from the Brontë family-- a trove which may be just another fiction. When Samantha enrolls at Oxford University, long lost objects from the past begin rematerializing in her life. Her fathers distinctive copy of Jane Eyre, which should have perished in the fire that claimed his life, is the first of many clues in an elaborate scavenger hunt derived from the world's greatest literature
Summary
Meet Samantha Whipple, a descendant of the Bronte family, who arrives at Oxford to study literature, as her father did before her. She receives a copy of Jane Eyre – a volume that she thought was destroyed in the fire that took her father’s life. When a second Bronte novel belonging to her father turns up, she is convinced he has staged an elaborate treasure hunt for her promised inheritance. Enlisting the help of her sexy, young professor,Samantha sets out on a quest to find buried treasure and learns the value of friendship and courage along the way. -- Kristen McCallum for LibraryReads
