The story both of the real world of the Brontes at Haworth Parsonage, their home on the edge of the lonely Yorkshire moors, and of the imaginary worlds they spun for themselves in their novels and poetry.

Wherever possible, their story is told using their own words - the letters they wrote to each other, Emily and Anne's secret diaries, and Charlotte's exchanges with luminaries of literary England - or those closest to them, such as their brother Branwell, their father Patrick Bronte, and their novelist friend Mrs Gaskell.

The Brontes sketched and painted their worlds too, in delicate ink washes and watercolours of family and friends, animals and the English moors. These pictures illuminate the text as do the tiny drawings the Bronte children made to illustrate their imaginary worlds. In addition, there are facsimiles of their letters and diaries, paintings by artists of the day, and pictures of household life.

This beautifully illustrated book offers a unique and privileged view of the real lives of three women, writers and sisters.

“Thoroughly engrossing and a joy to read”

I loved this from beginning to end. The illustrations and images really enhanced the reading experience. Anyone who has a interest in the Bronte's, theirs lives and works will absolutely devour this gem of a book.
