    more from this reviewer

    You had me at "Bronte" - a little unfortunately

    Anything that has to do with the Brontes pretty much ensures I will pick it up and read it. And this was not disappointing. It was a very intimate, yet strangely distant account of the Bronte family. Mostly, Charlotte (of course) but also quite a bit about Anne and Emily.

    And while it is fiction, you can imagine how true some of the issues addressed are. Like how Charlotte must have felt insecure and jealous when her two sisters books (Agnes Grey and Wuthering Heights) were accepted for publishing while her own first attempt (The Professor) was rejected. And then again, how jealous and slighted Anne and Emily felt when Charlotte's Jane Eyre met with great success and, in turn, set great criticism onto their own works.

    For any Bronte fans, this is a great read. You get more insight into the stories behind well... the stories (how Mr. Rochester is blind like the Bronte father, how Charlotte fell in love with a reserved professor and how their drunken brother became inspiration for both The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Wuthering Heights... etc). You don't necessarily feel very close to any of the characters even with how intimate the accounts are, but you feel you know them and their motives and, in course, their writing much better
