It divided her into cold, brightly coloured fires… The green silk of her scarf glittered with turreted purple ridges. All the interested parties converge in an archetypal Sussex churchyard on an archetypal dark and stormy night. A pure waste of time which I was suckered into by someone whose taste I had thought trustworthy, so that was a lesson bitterly learned. Blackadder had a belief that she represented, for Randolph Ash, a personification of History itself in its early mythical days. They feel the need to keep their discoveries private as many other academics are chasing similar leads.

It so happens that Mitchell and Bailey are not the only scholars with a vested interest in the Ash-LaMotte story. They uncover a large amount of information that will permanently change scholarship on LaMotte and Ash.

They have a chance encounter with the owner of Seal Court, LaMotte's former home, and manage to procure an invitation to visit. The love story set in the Victorian era was more convincing than the modern day one but both time-lines in their own way kept me turning the pages. But I run on again; assuredly you have determined on your own best ways of presenting the topic, you who are so wise and learned in your retirement. Roland was first profoundly shocked by these writings, and then, in his scholarly capacity, thrilled. It has been several years since I last read it, and I have to say that I saw it in a completely new light.

I can see that putting people off to begin with, but if you picked up the book already knowing it was about Victorian poets and squabbling Victorian scholars then I would think you'd be prepared for that kind of thing and be able to wade through it.

I know there are plenty of arguments against it, but to me, it summed up my life in the grey zone between reality lived and consumed in fiction. So sharing these fictional characters' possession is as close to a communal literary experience as I will ever get.
