    The overall story of this book was well written. While I wished

    The overall story of this book was well written. While I wished for some more details in the beginning, the story flowed easily, especially when the author used actual letters written to and by Charlotte Bronte. I would have loved to give this book a better review if it were not for the last part of the book. I found it hard to read the intimate details of Charlotte's marriage when the rest of the book doesn't go into such details and even dances around the affair of her brother's life. It did not fit with the rest of the story especially when Charlotte Bronte did not want even the smallest details of her life exposed and yet in this story it shows her in a degraded way that only sexual intimacy can achieve love. If the love story was at the author's liberty, Charlotte would have loved Arthur for who he was and not how he made her feel in such an intimate setting. Too many details left little to the imagination, and yet even in the Brontes' own works, they did not divulge such intamacies in graphic detail. I say stick with the Brontes' own works and you'll be much more satisfied. Especially when Charlotte Bronte has Jane Eyre's own romance to indulge in.
