Berlin, September 1872. The Duncker brothers, Max and Wolfgang, own a thriving publishing business in the city. Clever, irresponsible Max is as fond of gambling and brothels as the older, wiser, Wolfgang is of making a profit. When Max's bad habits get out of hand, Wolfgang sends him to the Spa town of Homburg, to dance attendance upon a celebrity author ? the enigmatic Sibyl, also known as George Eliot. As enthralling and intelligent as her books, she soon has Max bewitched. Yet Wolfgang has an ulterior motive: for his brother to consider Sophie von Hahn, daughter of a wealthy family friend, as a potential wife. At first, Max is lured by Sophie's beauty and his affectionate memories of their shared childhood. But Sophie proves to be nothing like the vision of angelic domesticity Max was expecting. Mischievous, wilful and daring, Sophie gambles recklessly and rides horses like a man. Both women have Max in thrall ? one with her youth and passion, the other with her wisdom and fierce intelligence. Out of his depth, Max finds himself precariously balanced between Sophie and the Sibyl. What's more, Sophie worships the great novelist of questionable morals ? and is determined to meet her. A compelling Victorian novel and a playful meditation on the creation of literature, Sophie and the Sibyl balances a tale of courtship and seduction with a fascinating, lively imagining of the writer George Eliot at the end of her boldly unconventional life, and the height of her fame.

Berlin, September 1872. Still sitzt sie am Kamin, die Beine übereinander geschlagen, den Blick konzentriert auf ihn gerichtet. Ihr Ruhm hallt durch ganz Europa, doch ihr deutscher Verleger Max Duncker steht ihr zum ersten Mal gegenüber: der gefeierten Autorin, die die Welt als George Eliot kennt. Der rätselhaften Sibylle, die als zu anstößig gilt, um bei respektablen Familien geladen zu werden, und von der doch jedes Wort verschlungen wird. Max mit seinem Hang zum Spiel und zu schönen Frauen ist von seinem Bruder angesetzt, die große Dame zu umgarnen und die Rechte an ihrem neuen Werk zu sichern. Zudem soll er sich mit der Gräfin Sophie von Hahn verloben, Tochter aus vermögendem Hause und glühende Verehrerin der Eliot. Als Sophie auf ein Treffen mit der bewunderten Autorin dringt, das Max ihr jedoch entschieden verwehrt, entspinnt sich ein wahres Dramolett der Eifersucht. Wie in ihrem großen Erfolg »Die Germanistin« beschreibt Patricia Duncker ein obsessives Verhältnis zwischen Autorin und Leserin, erzählt von Begehren und Verfehlung. Ein rachsüchtiges kleines Spiel, hintertrieben von Liebe.

The first novel from acclaimed author Cate Kennedy is a compassionate and unswerving portrait of a broken family whose members go to extraordinary lengths to reclaim their lives and relationships from the mistakes of the past. Fifteen years after their break-up, Rich and Sandy have both settled into the unfulfilling compromises of middle age: he’s a late-night infomercial editor with photojournalism aspirations; she makes hippie jewelry for a local market and struggles to maintain a New Age lifestyle that fails to provide the answers she seeks. To distract themselves from their inadequacies, Rich and Sandy cling to the shining moment of their youth, when they met as environmental activists as part of a world-famous blockade to save Tasmania’s Franklin River. Their daughter, Sophie, has always remained skeptical of this ecological fairytale, but when Rich invites her on a backpacking trip through Tasmania for her fifteenth birthday, Sophie sees it as a way to bond with a father she’s never known. As they progress further into the wilderness, the spell of Rich’s worldly charm soon gives way to suspicion and fear as his overconfidence sets off a chain of events that no one could have predicted.
