Explores the turbulent lives of the three literary siblings and the oppressive times in which they lived, and offers insight into their classic nineteenth-century novels.
Are you interested in the lives of famous people? Then here is a book for you to read.
These famous writers lived only a short time, but they left a lasting impression on the world. Their lives were not easy. Their mother died when they were young. Their father was a poor clergyman who never had enough money. That these three sisters were so talented is remarkable. That they became famous is astonishing!
In the 1800s women had few choices for their lives – marriage, school teaching, or governesses for wealthy children. The Bronte sisters tried the last two but found them not to their liking. They earned very little money from their writing and even had to use men’s names to get their books published. Today their books have been made into movies and television series. Would they be surprised!
