Of Allegories by Richard Mansfield Their ueries draw Sophie into a mystery that will cast doubt on the true authorship of Pride and Prejudice and ultimately threaten Sophie's life In a dual narrative that alternates between Sophie's uest to uncover the truth while choosing between two suitors and a young Jane Austen's touching friendship with the ageing cleric Richard Mansfield Lovett weaves a romantic suspenseful and utterly compelling novel about love in al. This is a slightly different take on the Jane Austen story Alternate chapters tell the hypothetical story of Jane's friendship with an elderly pastor and his influence on her as a young writer and a modern day mystery surrounding an old bookThe modern story is old through the eyes of Sophie Collingwood Oxford scholar and book lover who becomes embroiled in the mystery when she starts work in an antiuarian bookshop Woven into the mystery is the unexpected death of Sophie's beloved Uncle Bertram who introduced her to a love of books and writing Sophie must also deal with two handsome suitors who may or may not be after than her affection Jane's story stays close to what historians know of her life Well written and engrossing the mystery unfolds slowly to culminate in a suspenseful conclusionThe story is all about first impressions Jane's and Sophie's and how we should be careful to not leap to conclusions prematurely Much of the story is set in bookshops and libraries and gives an insight into the world of antiuarian books I liked this uote by Sophie's Uncle Bertram on the beauty of collecting rare books If you mail a rare stamp it becomes worthless If you drink a rare bottle of wine you're left with some recycling But if you read a rare book it's still there it's still valuable and it's achieved the full measure of it's being A book is to read whether it's worth five pounds or five thousand pounds Definitely one of the best of the current batch of Jane Austen spin offs 45★

First ImpressionsCharlie Lovett first delighted readers with his New York Times bestselling debut The Bookman's Tale Now Lovett weaves another brilliantly imagined mystery this time featuring one of English literature's most popular and beloved authors Jane Austen Book lover and Austen enthusiast Sophie Collingwood has recently taken a job at an antiuarian bookshop in London when two different customers reuest a copy of the same obscure book the second edition of Little Book. If you are a bibliophile you will enjoy this book As you enter the world of second hand books with that old musty moldy smell in the search of a rare Jane Austen draft of Pride and Prejudice you are immediately caught up in a rarefied atmosphere where books matter The story is told in two parts One is a twenty something Jane Austen and her friendship with a 80 year old curate Richard Mansfield The other part is told by modern day Sophie Collingwood who is hot on the trail of Jane Austen's first draft of P P called First Impressions The story of Jane and Mansfield is uite interesting even though it's fictional It tells of Jane's early struggles in creating her literary masterpieces Sophie grows up in a family with a fine library that no one is allowed to use It's kept locked up and no one is allowed to enter except once a year when Sophie's uncle comes and picks a book for his private collection I can not imagine a worse situation than having a wonderful library you can't use It almost makes me cry just thinking about it Sophie has a wonderful relationship with this uncle When he dies he leaves his house and library to her Unfortunately the library is sold to pay the estate's bills Poor Sophie Two libraries and no access to either There is a mystery involving the authorship of an Austen novel but that is really beside the point This book was designed just to enjoy the love of books The discussions of the earlier printing of books and typefaces was fascinating The creative process was uite revealing What made the book for me was just the joy of books and how much they mean to people I highly recommend it to people who just revel in their enjoyment of books
