Meet the Author

Anne Brontë (1820-1849) was the youngest of three Brontë sisters. Born to a poor Irish clergyman in the Church of England, Anne Brontë attended a few years of boarding school and worked as a governess between 1839 and 1845. Brontë wrote two novels in the late 1840s, AGNES GREY and THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL; both were well-received. She died of tuberculosis at the age of 29.
