520    Esme is born into a world of words. Motherless and 
       irrepressibly curious, she spends her childhood in the 
       Scriptorium, a garden shed in Oxford where her father and 
       a team of dedicated lexicographers are collecting words 
       for the very first Oxford English Dictionary . Young 
       Esme's place is beneath the sorting table, unseen and 
       unheard. One day a slip of paper containing the word 
       bondmaid flutters beneath the table. She rescues the slip,
       and when she learns that the word means -- slave girl -- 
       she begins to collect other words that have been discarded
       or neglected by the dictionary men. As she grows up, Esme 
       realizes that words and meanings relating to women's and 
       common folks' experiences often go unrecorded. And so she 
       begins in earnest to search out words for her own 
       dictionary: the Dictionary of Lost Words. To do so she 
       must leave the sheltered world of the university and 
       venture out to meet the people whose words will fill those
       pages. Set during the height of the women's suffrage 
       movement and with the Great War looming, The Dictionary of
       Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the 
       lines of a history written by men. Inspired by actual 
       events, author Pip Williams has delved into the archives 
       of the Oxford English Dictionary to tell this highly 
       original story.
