The title of the book refers to the three Bronte sisters--but it also touches upon the short tragic life of their talented brother--Branwell. I was not that familiar with the lives of the sisters--although I did know that their lives burned brightly as authors and ended far too early.
For me, this book fills in the blanks of their lives nicely. We see their lives traced from their birth to their (tragically early) deaths. Each of the three sisters wrote at least one impressive novel. They had begun writing much earlier, when they were quite young. As they grew up, they continued and deepened their commitment to writing. They went by the nom de plume of Bell--each with a different first name. They assumed male personae, given that the times were not favorable toward women authors (although, as the work noted, there were exceptions).
The volume describes their efforts to make a living, their home base with their father, the effects of living where they did.
All in all, we get a good introduction to their lives and their works. I, for one, found this a very nice work, albeit rather brief.
The book is 190 pages long, but the type is rather large and the spacing between lines rather large. On the other hand, the content was most helpful to me, and I think that for those who want a well written introduction to the lives of the Bronte sisters (and family), this will suffice nicely.
