Publisher's Summary

The Duncker brothers, Max and Wolfgang, own a thriving publishing business in Germany. When Max's gambling gets out of hand, Wolfgang sends him to pay court to a celebrity author, Sibyl, also known as George Eliot.
Yet Wolfgang has an ulterior motive: for his brother to consider Sophie von Hahn as a potential wife. Both women have Max in thrall. Out of his depth, Max finds himself precariously balanced between Sophie and the Sibyl.


What the Critics Say

"Sophie and the Sibyl is wonderful; I was transfixed. It's not just the fiendishly clever blending of real-life and fiction, I was completely gripped all the way through." (Kathryn Hughes)
