The novel alternates between the perspectives of Laura Lyons, wife of the library’s superintendent in 1913, and Sadie Donovan, a curator at the New York Public Library in 1993. The women are connected by the library, but also by blood. Laura was Sadie’s estranged grandmother and a famous essayist. Sadie struggles with the legacy of her grandmother, whom she knows very little about, as her own mother seldom spoke of her. But when rare manuscripts, notes, and books for the exhibit Sadie has been curating go missing from the library’s famous Berg Collection, unwelcome truths about her family heritage are uncovered—truths that shed new light on the biggest tragedy in the library’s history.
