A beautiful gift, and perfect gems for bookworms. * So Darling * The title of "the first feminist novel" has been awarded to other books, perhaps with less justice... a cracking page-turner * Guardian * Courageous and controversial * The Times * Frighteningly up-to-date tale of single motherhood and wife-battering * Independent *
Anne Bronte was born at Thornton in Bradford on 17 January 1820. Her father was curate of Haworth, Yorkshire, and her mother died when she was a baby, leaving five daughters and one son. Anne was the youngest of the Bronte children. In 1824 Charlotte, Maria, Elizabeth and Emily were sent to Cowan Bridge, a school for clergymen's daughters, where Maria and Elizabeth both caught tuberculosis and died. The children were taught at home from this point on and together they created vivid fantasy worlds which they explored in their writing. Anne worked as a governess between 1840 and 1845 and in 1846, along with Charlotte and Emily, published Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. After this Anne published Agnes Grey (1847) and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848) before her death on 28 May 1849.
