I liked this book! Enough to keep me up at night to see what happened. Very interesting ideas and perspectives by the author about what happened to Emily and Anne Bronte. If you like their work or even Jane Austen's work, you will enjoy this novel.

People who enjoyed The Daughter of Time, Josephine Tey's work purporting to uncover the truth of the murders of the two little princes in the Tower of London, should enjoy this. The author has a surprising theory about what really caused the deaths of the young Bronte sisters and their ne'er-do-well brother Branwell, as well as about the authorship of Wuthering Heights. It is presented as a story told by a young girl sent to work at the parsonage as a maid, interspersed with sections in which the author himself shares his reasonings with the reader.

A new point of view concerning the early deaths of the talented Bronte family,so long shrouded in literary mythology.

A provocative fictionalized account of the Bronte family with a disturbing premise: That Branwell, Anne, Emily and Charlotte were all murdered by their father's curate, Arthur Bell Nicholls. Intriguing and convincing in some places, a stretch in others, but as a work of fiction it does provide a thought-provoking read.
