Set against the backdrop of the Yorkshire moors, Catherine Brightons illustrated biography brings Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne to life. All children play at make-believe, but the Brontës went a step further, creating and chronicling their own charmed universe in their remote parsonage at Haworth. Based on elder sister Charlottes journals, The Brontës recounts days spent in their isolated world, dear Papas sermons, and the childrens increasingly obsessive interest in creating imaginary worlds.Dreamy, detailed illustrations show the romance of the familys existence, while the authentic voice of Charlotte creates a moving portrait of a glittering, fanciful world every bit as enchanting as the ones these young artists created.
