Old-fashioned English professor Arthur Prescott of Barchester, England has two passions in his life — books/manuscripts and the Holy Grail. When he is not teaching, he can usually be found in the Barchester Cathedral Library, enjoying its centuries-old collection. His predictable life is shaken up when bubbly American Bethany Davis arrives to digitize the library’s ancient manuscripts. Are these two diametrically opposed, or can each of them appreciate both printed books and digital versions that can be used by anyone anywhere in the world? Oh, and Bethany is also a Holy Grail enthusiast. And there is a mystery surrounding a missing manuscript having to do with Saint Ewolda, long associated with the Cathedral.
This is a delightful novel about two very different people who just might be falling in love as they try to uncover the Cathedral’s secrets. A great read for book lovers, Grail enthusiasts who like a quieter approach than Indiana Jones, and Anglophiles. Reserve a copy.
