Charlotte Brontë, author of 'Jane Eyre', spent most of her life concealing a secret. Like a wizard or magician, she could conjure thousands of anagrams in her mind and then hide them inside the pages of her writing. At first, this talent was a playful novelty in her childhood, but as she grew older and more proficient, her secret code took on immense proportions and serious consequences when she began writing about corruption and murder in her township. Charlotte was a small, defenseless woman, so this attack against the criminals took courage and resolve; she was terrified the men would detect the dark truths hidden in her fiction. To protect herself and her family, she shielded her identity through a filter of three male pseudonyms: Currer Bell, Ellis Bell, and Acton Bell. Charlotte knew she was playing a dangerous game in giving voice to the thieves’ conspiracy of silence, but her anger at the injustice and her desire to speak the truth outweighed her fear of reprisal. The anagram messages she left for her readers show how a diabolical fraud continued for years in her village. Her code also explains why she perpetrated a hoax of three literary sisters. By the end of 'Charlotte’s Brontë’s Thunder', you will admire this amazing writer even more. You will also be convinced that she wrote all the Brontë works. This book proves that Charlotte Brontë was an exceptional woman and an even greater literary genius than was first imagined.
