It’s a bit of a slow burn that gives readers a glimpse into the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary. Begun in 1857, the first full 10-volume set was published in 1928. A second edition was published in 1989, and a third is underway. Told from the perspective of a fictional female character, it offers insight into the “lost” words of womanhood told against the backdrop of the British suffragist movement and World War 1.
