Summary
It's 1913, and on the surface, Laura Lyons couldn't ask for more out of life: her husband is the superintendent of the New York Public Library, and they are blessed with two children. But Laura wants more, and when she applies to the Columbia Journalism School, her world is cracked wide open. As her studies take her all over the city, she discovers the Heterodoxy Club - a radical, all-female group in which women are encouraged to loudly share their opinions on suffrage, birth control, and women's rights. Soon, Laura finds herself questioning her traditional role as wife and mother. But when valuable books are stolen back at the library, she's forced to confront her shifting priorities head on. Eighty years later, in 1993, Sadie Donovan struggles with the legacy of her grandmother, the famous essayist Laura Lyons, especially after she's wrangled her dream job as a curator at the New York Public Library. But the job quickly becomes a nightmare when rare manuscripts begin disappearing from the library's famous Berg Collection. Sadie teams up with a private security expert to uncover the culprit. However, things unexpectedly become personal when the investigation leads Sadie to some unwelcome truths about her own family heritage - truths that shed new light on the biggest tragedy in the library's history
