Reading Challenge: All About the Brontes 2010
I absolutely loved this book! Syrie James manages to capture the Bronte sisters in a beautiful and delightful way. I learned so much about each of them and her family. We also learn where she got all her ideas from for her novels. This has opened up Jane Eyre to me and Wuthering Heights more than I ever thought possible. I have never been a big fan of Wuthering Heights, but I got some insight into Emily Bronte in this novel about her motivations for writing this. I'm now excited to reread this one for the Bronte Challenge going on now.
Charlotte Bronte's life had quite a bit of romance! I was so sad to realize that she died only nine months after marrying the love of her life.
Syrie James spins her story for us in a perfectly knit blankie and I was warm and comfy reading it! (I know, cheese factor is super high with this sentence!!!)
