Ex Libris

An Oxford lecturer and expert on the Romantic poets dies leaving everything, including a cottage in Oxfordshire, to her distant relative Jennifer.

Jennifer knows very little about her, but as she begins her search through her belongings she discovers a great deal more than she expects.

For a start, there's a bundle of passionate letters from an undergraduate, written to her when she was already in her forties, along with a series of notes scribbled in the margins of poetry books.

The notes read almost like replies to the letters.

As Jennifer sorts through the library and the letters, she leaves messages on the answering machine for her own partner, and increasingly desperate emails which are not returned.

And through conversations with her neighbour, Carol, Jennifer begins to understand that Lavinia may be speaking to her far more directly than she had realised.
