Samantha Moorehas always hidden behind the words of others—namely her favorite characters inliterature. Now, she will learn to write her own story—by giving thatstory to a complete stranger.

Growing uporphaned and alone, Sam found her best friends in the works of Austen, Dickens,and the Brontë sisters. The problem is that she now relates to others morecomfortably as Elizabeth Bennet and Jane Eyre than as herself.

Sometimes we loseourselves in the things we care about most.

But life for thistwenty-three-year-old is about to get stranger than fiction, when an anonymousbenefactor (calling himself “Mr. Knightley”) offers to put Sam through theprestigious Medill School of Journalism. There is only one catch: Sammust write frequent letters to the mysterious donor, detailing her progress.

As Sam’s programand peers force her to confront her past, she finds safety in her increasinglypersonal letters to Mr. Knightley. And when Sam meets eligible, best-sellingnovelist Alex Powell, those letters unfold a story of love and literature thatfeels as if it’s pulled from her favorite books. But when secrets come tolight, Sam is – once again – made painfully aware of how easily trust can bebroken.

Reay’s debut novelfollows one young woman’s journey as she sheds her protective persona andembraces the person she was meant to become.
