As a probate genealogist, Anna Ames is often asked by her boss to delve into family mysteries but in this case, finding a missing daughter of a convicted murderer about to be paroled, she is deeply concerned about where her responsibility lies and insists on finding out more before any connection is made. Does the daughter even know about her father and what might happen if they meet? Twists and turns with both tragic and joyful consequences follow. This is a story where the techniques of genealogical research are less important than its potentially explosive effects on people's lives because, like all probing into even the most recent past, unsuspected good and ill can erupt without warning. Meanwhile, Anna's home life is changing as Faye moves out and Ellis edges painfully into adolescence, all set against her developing relationship with Steve and the challenge of how to deal with his hostile niece, Alice. But, as always, home is her refuge where her father, George, dispenses food, poetry and unconditional love. Her secret worry is for how long that can last.

REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK FOR MAY ’22! • “Delightful . . . [a] captivating and slyly subversive fictional paean to the real women whose work on the Oxford English Dictionary went largely unheralded.”—The New York Times Book Review “A marvelous fiction about the power of language to elevate or repress.”—Geraldine Brooks, New York Times bestselling author of People of the Book Esme is born into a world of words. Motherless and irrepressibly curious, she spends her childhood in the Scriptorium, an Oxford garden shed in which her father and a team of dedicated lexicographers are collecting words for the very first Oxford English Dictionary. Young Esme’s place is beneath the sorting table, unseen and unheard. One day a slip of paper containing the word bondmaid flutters beneath the table. She rescues the slip and, learning that the word means “slave girl,” begins to collect other words that have been discarded or neglected by the dictionary men. As she grows up, Esme realizes that words and meanings relating to women’s and common folks’ experiences often go unrecorded. And so she begins in earnest to search out words for her own dictionary: the Dictionary of Lost Words. To do so she must leave the sheltered world of the university and venture out to meet the people whose words will fill those pages. Set during the height of the women’s suffrage movement and with the Great War looming, The Dictionary of Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the lines of a history written by men. Inspired by actual events, author Pip Williams has delved into the archives of the Oxford English Dictionary to tell this highly original story. The Dictionary of Lost Words is a delightful, lyrical, and deeply thought-provoking celebration of words and the power of language to shape the world. WINNER OF THE AUSTRALIAN BOOK INDUSTRY AWARD
