Discussion question
1. What kind of skills do you have?

4. a. "It's one of our stories, papa," "We have to come in here to look at the picture. Then we invent what happens."
b. I like this sentence because when Charlotte was asked his father to see the books, she didn't tell him, but this time she did it and it's story was theirs. He might have been pleased.

4. The world is a hard place, children, and we cannot understand everything that God does. But God loves us, never forget that. Your mother loved you, and perhaps she can see you now. We must all try to work hard, learn as much as possible, and be kind to each other. Will you do that?
I really moved with this sentence.
5. I cannot image that my family will be die one after another.
If you are after a quick reference guide on the Brontë sisters then The Bronte Story is a compact read of around 60 pages that will set you straight.

Having recently read the fictional work The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Brontë by Laura Joh Rowland, I was drawn to this compact Oxford Bookworm to jolt my knowledge of the sister and clarify who wrote what and when etc.

There are even some great photographs of Haworth village where the family lived and ink drawings done by the Brontë’s, who could

I really like this sentence. How sweet he is!
5 This story was sad. Many people got sick and died and a boy was crazy because he got dumped.
I can't read the book I can red it on this website?
Yaa ben bunun sınavından yüz alırdım ama iptal edildi ya içime oturdu... Neyse.
Sadece yazar olan 3 bronte kardeşten fazlasını yani kısaca tüm aileyi anlatan bir tür biyografi. Gerçekten çok etkileyici ve dramatik bir biyografiydi. Hatta artık sonlara doğru ağlayacaktım. Bu kitap kısacık bir ingilizce öğrenim kitabıysada bu kitabı oluduktan sonra bronteların kitapları kesinlikle daha anlamlı gelecek bana... Zaten Tim Vicary oxfordun bookworm dizisinde başı çeken isimdir.

I didn't noticed that this story is about the great writers until I saw two words put together "Emily Bronte." Her story, "Wuthering Heights" is really famous, and I've seen the movie of her sister's "Jane Eyre." Then this book was getting very interested in reading it. I realized what Angela said that female writers use male names. Even now Harry Potter's writer did.
