about the book
Emily and Charlotte Brontë are about as opposite as two sisters can be. Charlotte is practical and cautious; Emily is headstrong and imaginative. But they do have one thing in common: a love of writing. This shared passion will lead them to be two of the first published female novelists and authors of several enduring works of classic literature. But they're not there yet. First, they have to figure out if there is a connection between a string of local burglaries, rumors that a neighbor's death may not have been accidental, and the appearance on the moors of a mysterious and handsome stranger. The girls have a lot of knots to untangle—before someone else gets killed.
Wonderfully written novel featuring two of my favorite authors as protagonists. Charlotte and Emily Bronte (along with the rest of the family) are the main characters in this fantastic book. We see the growth and development of the characters as they progress through the story. We see the inspiration for JANE EYRE and WUTHERING HEIGHTS. I was deeply moved by the relationship between the two sisters. As a reader, I chose one sister as a personal favorite.
Even if you are not familiar with the Bronte's this is an enjoyable story. If you are familiar, it will encourage you to reread the novels of the two women.
