The Dictionary of Lost Words (2021)

A wonderful story about the power of language.

Esme is born in a world of words. She is surrounded by books from birth. A motherless child who is irrepressibly curious spends her childhood in a garden shed where her father and a team are collecting words for the first Oxford English Dictionary.

Young Esme‘s place is underneath the sorting table, unseen, and unheard. One day a slip with the word “bondmaid” falls under the table. She rescues the slips and, learning that the term means “slave girl”, begins to collect other words which have been discarded or neglected.

“A captivating and slyly subversive novel that celebrates the real women who worked on the Oxford English Dictionary.”

The Book Guide® Editor

As she gets older, Esme realizes that women’s and ordinary people’s experiences are not always recorded. She starts by searching for words in her own dictionary. She must leave her sheltered world of the university to meet the people who will write those words.
