“I loved this short story and am tickled that it was written as an interlude between novels. Very clever because it connected the novels but gave us a glimpse of Brooklyn Wainwright's family life.
Brooklyn is spending time off with her Mother and Father at their home in Sonoma County. Brooklyn's Mother is asked to help clean out a home of her friend, who has just passed away. The friend was a agoraphobic and the house borders on the disease of Hoarding. Although the house is built within outside walls of 6' high concrete, the ladies find beauty within.
Brooklyn is there for her pick of books. The husband, Bryon has given them their choice and there is a complete set of Jane Austen that just needs some care.
As Brooklyn begins teaching her class on Book binding, repairing etc. a student finds a letter within the pages of one of the Jane Austen books. What the letter says causes Brooklyn and her family great confusion and some discomfort.
This is a mystery of a different sort for Brooklyn to solve.
I loved having the other family members involved. I enjoyed seeing Brooklyn's relationship with her best friend evolve. This book was a great bridge between books and a wonderful way to keep us up to date as we eagerly await the new novel.”
