The Bronte sisters were the most extraordinary of literary siblings. In the nineteenth century, when women were discouraged from writing and publishing books, all three produced one or more novels now considered masterpieces. In "The Bronte Sisters," award-winning author Catherine Reef explores the turbulent lives of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne and offers insights into their passionate and timeless work.

The sisters spent their childhood creating endless imaginative stories with their brother, Branwell, and running free on the wild moors of Yorkshire, England. Their mother died when they were tiny girls, and two older sisters soon followed her to the grave. Heartbreak and hardship continued to plague the Brontes, but the sisters leaned on one another. They turned their misfortune into novels and poems that remain as potent today as whey they were written.

As tragic and as much fun to read as "Jane Eyre," "Wuthering Heights," or "Agnes Grey," this enthralling family biography introduces young readers to these fascinating writers and their books.
