(From the publisher):
Mary Lamb is confined by the restrictions of domesticity: her father is losing his mind, her mother watchful and hostile. The great solace of her life is her brother Charles, an aspiring writer. It is no surprise when Mary falls for the bookseller's son, antiquarian William Ireland, from whom Charles has purchased a book. But this is no ordinary book -- it once belonged to William Shakespeare himself. And William Ireland with his green eyes and red hair is no ordinary young man.
