Description

Emily and Charlotte Bronte are about as opposite as two sisters can be. Charlotte is practical and cautious; Emily is headstrong and imaginative. But they do have one thing in common: a love of writing. This shared passion will lead them to be two of the first published female novelists and authors of several enduring works of classic literature. But they're not there yet. First, they have to figure out if there is a connection between a string of local burglaries, rumors that a neighbor's death may not have been accidental, and the appearance on the moors of a mysterious and handsome stranger. The girls have a lot of knots to untangle- before someone else gets killed.

Our customer reviews

Overall, I quite enjoyed this Gothic mystery in the vein of the Bronte sisters, Emily and Charlotte, on whom the book uses both as inspiration and as the main characters. Elements are taken from both "Jane Eyre" and "Wuthering Heights" and incorporated into this historical mystery featuring the sisters and their brother, Branwell. I found it rather slow for a mystery and more in tune with the novels than the real Brontes but nevertheless it was still an entertaining Gothic mystery. Of particular note is the engaging Author's Note at the end of the novel detailing some real historical facts and notes on where she took artistic license.show more
