Another wonderfully eloquent novel by Charlotte Bronte. It is said that she had difficulty getting a publisher for this novel due to its ordinary story of that time. I found it relevent for anyone looking for that special vocation, or someone in their life, and the struggles that go along with "the everyday life". Also of course it is a book for anyone who is in love with finely written literature. The Bronte sisters are awesome and rereading Jane Eyre brought me back to them- this was then the second one I read. I am reading Agnes Gray right now than Emma up next.
For those who enjoy Bronte's witty, thoughtful, independent-thinking and reflective characters, this story is wonderful. Shorter than most of her works, it's an easy read, but still has all the good stuff Bronte offers. Enjoy!
This early story is one of the everyday life of a schoolteacher. Don't look for any suspense or action; you won't find it. Yet this seemingly mundane manuscript will still hold your interest.
A bonus in this publication is the inclusion of three chapters of an unfinished work: a must read for any admirer of Bronte.
