Storyline

While attending a book fair in Cambridge in order to buy rare books to stock Charlie Gimbert's library at Felsham Hall, Lovejoy answers a call from two aging spinster sisters who need money to stay in their home. The only thing of real value is a historic 16th Century Marston Bible, the first Bible translated into English. Unfortunately it is jointly owned by their younger brother, a Cambridge professor who plans to donate it to the University library upon his promotion to Master. When Lovejoy discovers the Bible is a fake, Professor Doncaster admits that he had to sell the Bible years before to support his sisters and now needs the upcoming promotion and its subsequent pay-raise to ensure their security. As a sidebar, Tink and Charlotte try unsuccessfully to convince Beth's dad that he should allow his daughter to remain an apprentice to Lovejoy. Written by duke1029@aopl.com
