The Bronte sisters are among the most beloved writers of all time, best known for their classic nineteenth-century novels "Jane Eyre" (Charlotte), "Wuthering Heights" (Emily), and "Agnes Grey" (Anne). In this sometimes heartbreaking young adult biography, Catherine Reef explores the turbulent lives of these literary siblings and the oppressive times in which they lived.

  1. I am fascinated by the Bronte's tragic lives and how much of their real lives they wrote into their stories. I can't imagine how hard it was for their father to outlive all of his children. I'll have to check out this book.
