"Denise Giardina’s extraordinary gift for conjuring voices of the past has never been more bewitchingly deployed than here in Emily’s Ghost—a romance so tormentedly devoted to its struggle toward truth that Brontë herself would be proud of it." —Madison Smartt Bell

Enigmatic, intelligent, and fiercely independent, Emily Brontë refuses to bow to the conventions of her day. She is distrustful of marriage, prefers freedom above all else, and walks alone at night on the moors above the isolated rural village of Haworth. But Emily’s life is turned upside down by the arrival of an idealistic clergyman named William Weightman. A heart-wrenching love story, Emily’s Ghost plumbs the depths of faith, longing, and romantic solitude.

This brings the Bronte sisters to life again. A must for Jane Austen fans. Giardina has captured the spirit of both the sisters as well as the times in which they lived. Do read it, you'll not regret it!

I wish I had more biographical knowledge about the Bronte sisters. Prior knowledge would have made the read more meaningful, I think. The story was so well written but I knew shortly into it that it was NOT going to be light reading and it was not going to be one of those "happily ever after" stories. Because I read for entertainment I would have never read this book unless a book club member had chosen it. Excellent read but sooooo not uplifting! I definitely recommend it for those who prefer to read something other than intellectualy fluff (I called it trash once and a friend thought I was exposing my children to dreadful things!!!).
