The special collections of the New York Public Library are featured in this story which switches between 1913 and 1993. Sadie Donovan is curating a show of literary oddities from the Berg Collection when rare books start disappearing. As the investigation continues, Sadie's relationship to Laura Lyons, the famous essayist, becomes a factor in her life and work. Although I found the comparison of the two time periods fascinating, I became impatient with Sadie who often represented the worst side of the librarian stereotypes in her thoughts and behaviors.
