Summary
The three Bronte sisters - Anne, Charlotte and Emily - moved to Haworth Parsonage as children in 1820. It was there, on the edge of the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Moors, that they produced some of the most memorable, influential and best-loved novels in the English language. Ann Dinsdale paints a detailed picture of everyday life at Haworth in the 1840s, recounting the Bronte family history and describing the local village and surrounding countryside. She goes on to consider the Brontes' poetry and novels in the context of their socio-historic background
Summary
Explores the life, work, and legacy of each Brontes, including Maria Branwell, who died after giving birth to six children, and the two eldest but short-lived Brontes sisters
