The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay - An Intelligent and Poignant Journey of Adventure, Loss and Love

As is the normal for any novel by the talented Katherine Reay, her newest novel, The Bronte Plot is elegance personified. I think each of Katherine's novels has either matched or surpassed her debut Dear Mr. Knightley, and it goes without saying that I fangirled - and still can, over DMK. Her newest (which just launched today) is beautiful. It's more about a woman finding herself and discovering what Truth and honesty means and less about being a romance, but it's one of the best books I've read this year.

I reviewed the book over on Silver Petticoat today and am sharing it along with news of a giveaway here today. I know we've had a lot of giveaways here lately and that's never my intention, but gosh, there are a lot of amazing books coming out. Makes sense since we are entering the fall/winter months which tend to be great for publishers.

The Brontë Plot Review

It takes a talented pen to consistently turn out novels that speak to an avid book lover’s heart! It takes talent and genuine passion for an author to progressively grow stronger and better with each new story. Katherine Reay easily falls into the latter category with The Brontë Plot. Each of her novels (three, counting this release) is driven by literary influences and each is suffused in old-fashioned values. Basically, every book this author has penned has been a kind of ode to the novels that are perhaps left to the dust and forgotten among the contemporary impacts of modern fandoms. Continue Reading→
