With the bookshop where she works about to close, Laura Horsley finds herself agreeing to help organize a literary festival deep in the heart of the English countryside. But when an innocent mistake leads the festival committee to believe that Laura is a personal friend of the author at the top of their wish-list, she finds herself travelling to Ireland to persuade the notorious recluse (and her literary hero) to come out of hiding.
