The Bronte Sisters
THE BRONTE SISTERS: THE BRIEF LIVES OF CHARLOTTE, EMILY AND ANNE by Catherine Reef. Clarion, 2013.
The Bronte Sisters, whose first books were published under pen names because women were not seen as fit to be authors, experienced much in their young lives: much loss, much love, much success, much failure. Their lives and their deaths are chronicled here by Reef who draws readers in to the time and place with careful detail and meticulous detail.
