Description
In Catherine Lowell's smart and original debut novel--hailed by Deborah Harkness as a "charming and memorable read"--the last remaining descendant of the Bront#65533; family embarks on a modern-day literary scavenger hunt, using only the clues her eccentric father left behind, and the Bront#65533;s' own novels. Samantha Whipple is used to stirring up speculation wherever she goes. Since her father's untimely death, she is the presumed heir to a long-rumored trove of diaries, paintings, letters, and early novel drafts passed down from the Bront#65533; family--a hidden fortune never revealed to anyone outside of the family, but endlessly speculated about by Bront#65533; scholars and fanatics. Samantha, however, has never seen this alleged estate and for all she knows, it's just as fictional as Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights . But everything changes when Samantha enrolls at Oxford University and long lost objects from her past begin rematerializing in her life, beginning with an old novel annotated in her father's handwriting. With the help of a handsome but inscrutable professor, Samantha plunges into a vast literary mystery and an untold family legacy, one that can only be solved by repurposing the tools of literature and decoding the clues hidden within the Bront#65533;s' own novels. A fast-paced adventure from start to finish for readers who devoured The Weird Sisters and Special Topics in Calamity Physics , The Madwoman Upstairs is a moving exploration of what happens when the greatest truth is, in fact, fiction.
