Anne Bronte was a 19th century British novelist and poet. She and her sisters Charlotte and Emily were the best-known women writers of the 19th century. At age 19 she left home and worked as a governess for a few years before becoming a writer. Agnes Grey was an 1847 novel based on her experience as a governess.

Bronte depicts the precarious position of a governess and how that can effect a young woman. Agnes was the daughter of a minister whose family was in financial difficulty. Agnes has only a few choices for employment. Agnes learns the difficulty of reining in spoiled children and how wealth can corrupt morals. She later opens up a school and finds happiness.

      Comments about Agnes Grey:

      I got this book as I am a big fan of Charlotte and Emily and wanted to see what Anne was like. I was surprised at how good it was seeing as no one seems to talk about it! It was almost as if it was written in modern times but set in the past - almost. The language is comparatively modern and much easier to read than any other book I have read from this period. The characters are realistic and it is fast moving for such an old story and I enjoyed it very much.
