I had to read one of my sync freebies, and my eye fell on this one.

Lucy goes with a client to England (and honestly a lot of drama in there. The client is the gran of her ex. Lucy did something bad at work. Lucy wants to visit England to see her dad she has not seen for decades.) Yes bring the drama.

But mostly it was Lucy coming to terms what she did and if she can make it better. And if she can find a way back to her ex. All while being in England, the home of her beloved literary heroes and heroines.

Good book. Good narration too, she was really great and did a fantastic job

Lucy Alling makes a living selling rare books, often taking suspicious measures 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 the ghosts of 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 change.

Now Lucy must go back into 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.
