The vanishing act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell( Book )

69 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 2,538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the middle of tending to the everyday business at her vintage-clothing shop and sidestepping her married boyfriend's attempts at commitment, Iris Lockhart receives a stunning phone call: Her great-aunt Esme, whom she never knew existed, is being released from Cauldstone Hospital--where she has been locked away for more than sixty-one years. Iris's grandmother Kitty always claimed to be an only child. But Esme's papers prove she is Kitty's sister, and Iris can see the shadow of her dead father in Esme's face. Esme has been labeled harmless--sane enough to coexist with the rest of the world. But she's still basically a stranger, a family member never mentioned by the family, and one who is sure to bring life-altering secrets with her when she leaves the ward. If Iris takes her in, what dangerous truths might she inherit?--Publisher description

"Daniel Sullivan, a young American professor reeling from a failed marriage and a brutal custody battle, is on holiday in Ireland when he falls in love with Claudette, a world famous sexual icon and actress who fled fame for a reclusive life in a rural village. Together, they make an idyllic life in the country, raising two more children in blissful seclusion until a secret from Daniel's past threatens to destroy their meticulously constructed and fiercely protected home. What follows is a journey through Daniel's many lives told in his voice and the voices of those who have made him the man he is: the American son and daughter he has not seen for many years; the family he has made with Claudette; and irrepressible, irreverent Claudette herself. Shot through with humor and wisdom, This Must Be the Place is a powerful rumination on the nature of identity, and the complexities of loyalty and devotion a gripping story of an extraordinary family and an extraordinary love"--

Lily meets Marcus, an elusive but magnetic architect, on a pavement outside a gallery. Within a week she has moved into his echoing warehouse apartment in East London. But nothing could have prepared her for what she finds. A distinct presence haunts the flat, that of a woman who seems to have left in a hurry, leaving behind a single dress hanging in the wardrobe, a mysterious mark on the wall and the suffocating, lingering odour of jasmine. Marcus, deep in private grief, refuses to discuss it. Only Aidan, the other flatmate, understands Lily's unease but he won't explain what took place before her arrival. Consumed by curiosity, it doesn't take long before Lily's intrigue becomes an all-pervading obsession

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In early nineteenth-century England, an orphaned young woman accepts employment as a governess and soon finds herself in love with her employer who has a terrible secret. Charlotte Bronte's novel about the passionate love between Jane Eyre, a young girl alone in the world, and the rich, brilliant, domineering Rochester has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic, ever since its publication in 1847. It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving affirmation of the prerogatives of the heart in the face of disappointment and misfortune
