How Elizabeth Barrett Browning Saved My Life

Genre: Fiction; Author: Mameve Medwed; Publisher: William Morrow

What do true love and a vintage chamber pot have in common? A lot, if the pot was once used by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. When small-time antiques dealer Abby Randolph lugs her find to Antiques Roadshow and gets a $75,000 appraisal, her life turns upside down: A relative sues her and two difficult exes reappear — one had humiliated her by writing her into a novel; the other pilfered her mail and erased her voice-mails. Mameve Medwed’s romantic comedy, How Elizabeth Barrett Browning Saved My Life, is slim on plot but packed with raffish charm.
