The Dictionary of Lost Words

(Pocket)

Beskrivning:

'An enchanting story about love, loss and the power of language' Elizabeth Macneal, author of The Doll Factory



Sometimes you have to start with what's lost to truly find yourself...


Motherless and irrepressibly curious, Esme spends her childhood at her father's feet as he and his team gather words for the very first Oxford English Dictionary.

One day, she sees a slip of paper containing a forgotten word flutter to the floor unclaimed.

And so Esme begins to collect words for another dictionary in secret: The Dictionary of Lost Words. But to do so she must journey into a world on the cusp of change as the Great War looms and women fight for the vote. Can the power of lost words from the past finally help her make sense of her future?

Readers love The Dictionary of Lost Words:

'If you only read one book this year, let it be this one!'



'If you're a fan of The Binding and The Betrayals you will surely love this'

'A glorious combination of words, growing up, friendship, love, feminism and so much more'

'The best love letter to words and language'

'This book broke my heart ... I highly recommend it to any historical fiction fans ... it's one I will be reading again'
