The Anglophile's Notebook
The Anglophile's Notebook by Sunday Taylor offers a taste of everything that makes a reader fall in love with a book: it is mostly set in the cozy fall/winter ambience of an 18th century Yorkshire country house on the English moors and it is filled with fascinating historical details about the lives of the Brontë family (you will enjoy these stories even if you haven't read the Brontës), and sympathetic characters that feel like they could be your friends. Its delicious details made the bibliophile, the Anglophile and the foodie in me swoon. Taylor notably develops her characters slowly and beautifully with a few mysteries and a couple of sweet second-chance-at-love stories.
Claire Easton is an American writer who writes a magazine column called "The Anglophile's Notebook." She travels to England to do research for her book about Charlotte Brontë. She has been in a painful marriage with few friends in the US, and along with her literary discoveries, she finds new love, friendships and unexpected family in England.
