Product description

Review

"Romance and heartache and doom, oh my! This beautifully written and researched account . . . reads like a novel, with rich and evocative language." --The New York Times Book Review

"For readers discovering the wonder of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, this collective biography of the Bronte family fills in fascinating detail of their personal and public lives . . . [a] stirring biography."
--Booklist, starred review

"Gracefully plotted, carefully researched . . . A solid and captivating look at these remarkable pioneers of modern fiction."
--Kirkus, starred review

"A detail-rich look at the lives of the Bronte sisters, whose work shocked, entertained, and provoked the minds of their Victorian audiences. . . . . A comprehensive introduction to the authors behind some of the most-studied novels in English literature."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"For anyone who has ever loved the romantic yet melancholy Heathcliff or the determined Jane Eyre, this book belongs on your shelf."
--The Huffington Post

"This biography for middle-schoolers introduces a fascinating, close-knit family with lively imaginations who liked nothing better than to run free on the moors that surrounded their home and make up stories and poems about imaginary kingdoms."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"If you're in search of a readable, yet detailed, biography of the Bronte sisters, then look no further than Reef's account, an ideal supplement to any student's reading of the Bronte classics."
--EW.com

Never judge a book by its cover sums up this attempt at biography. It reads like a classroom composition and concentrates on negative supposition rather than documented fact.

My girlfriend said she liked this book. One thing she mentioned was how it was nice to hear about their brother who is rarely mentioned usually. For a more complete review of the book itself, I recommend reading another review. I just wanted to add that small note about the brother.
