Few literary families were as touched by genius — or drama — as the Brontës. Set against the backdrop of the Yorkshire moors, Catherine Brighton's illustrated biography brings Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne to life. All children play at make-believe, but the Brontës went a step further, creating and chronicling their own charmed universe in their remote parsonage at Haworth. Based on elder sister Charlotte's journals, The Brontës recounts days spent in their isolated world, "dear Papa's" sermons, and the children's increasingly obsessive interest in creating imaginary worlds.

Dreamy, detailed illustrations show the romance of the family's existence, while the authentic voice of Charlotte creates a moving portrait of a glittering, fanciful world every bit as enchanting as the ones these young artists created.

Industry Reviews

"The complement of word and picture is perfect, the muted tones of the watercolours foregrounding both the period and the powerful atmosphere." School Librarian"
