The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street

Not as good as its predecessor, this sequel to 84 Charing Cross Road tells of Helen's adventure once she finally gets to see London, and her spiritual quest that is met while she is there. Written as a diary, she talks of the places she visits and the people she meets. Just as charming and funny as her first book, this book lacks warmth of a relationship that her first book had. Still, lovers of the first book will be overjoyed that there is this sequel to turn to so they can see what happens to Helene next. Takes only about an hour to read, and is a lot of fun.
