THE BOOKMAN’S TALE , by Charlie Lovett, is the perfect summer read for the booklover! When Peter Byerly, an American antiquarian bookseller from North Carolina, loses his beloved wife, Amanda, he loses interest in almost everything. And being a loner, Peter escapes to the English countryside, trying to recover his life.
In an 18-century book about Shakespeare forgeries, a Victorian portrait slips from the pages and flutters to the floor. Peter is shocked at the uncanny resemblance to his dead wife. Of course this can not be her. This is enough to have him off and running, trying to locate the origins.
Fast-paced, with a sense of style that draws you in, Lovett writes with passion for books, mystery, and sense of place. England is the ultimate spot for old books and mystery.
Charlie Lovett is a writer, teacher, and playwright. He is a former antiquarian bookseller and an avid book collector. He lives in North Carolina and Kingham, Oxfordshire, England.
