“A sweet read even a Wuthering Heights
fan can love.” —Entertainment Weekly
Young scholar Sara Frosts unsuccessful search for the lost love letters of Charlotte Brontë hasnt won her any favors at her university, particularly now that the glamorous and self-promoting Princess Diana expert, Claire Vigee, has introduced her media-savvy exploits to the staid halls of academia. But its not until Saras fiancé suddenly leaves her that she begins to question her lifes vocation.
Saras jolt brings her to an unusual new world, one populated by a cheerfully amoral Frenchman, a pair of New York eccentrics who pretend to live in the nineteenth century, a lapsed methadone addict and screenwriter, and a Hollywood producer who mistakenly assumes that the short, sad life of Charlotte Brontë has the makings of the next “feel good” movie blockbuster.
The Brontë Project is an irreverent and comic look at love, loss, literature, and pop culture, and a guide to reconciling the mythology of romance with the reality of modern love.

Look for the readers group guide at the back of this book.
Smart, appealing, and unforgettably unique, this intelligent and wickedly funny novel tells the story of a young, self-effacing Bront scholar who is forced to reconcile the mythology of romance with the reality of modern love.
