Set in an English cathedral city, The Lost Book of the Grail tells the story of obsessive bibliophile and Holy Grail fanatic Arthur Prescott as he works to uncover a long-lost secret about the cathedral’s past—and its connections to King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
Arthur Prescott is happiest when surrounded by the ancient books and manuscripts of the Barchester Cathedral library. When a beautiful young American named Bethany Davis arrives in Barchester charged with the task of digitizing the library’s manuscripts, Arthur’s tranquillity is broken. Appalled by the threat modern technology poses to the library he loves, he sets out to thwart Bethany, only to find in her a kindred spirit with a similar love for knowledge and books—and a fellow Grail fanatic. Bethany soon joins Arthur in a quest to find the lost Book of Ewolda, the ancient manuscript telling the story of the cathedral’s founder that was last seen being carried away by a mysterious figure during one of Barchester Cathedral’s most dangerous nights.
