I grabbed this one from the library because I am very curious about Charlotte Bronte and her sisters. This book takes the reader into the time period when Charlotte was taking care of her father while he was recovering from his eye surgery. Each of the Bronte children get a turn to shine in this little gem and I came to realize that the sisters hard a very hard life, especially when it came to their spoiled, drug addicted brother. The first 50 pages or so were a bit slow for me and I almost shut the book for good. But curiosity about Charlotte won out and I'm glad that I finished it. It wasn't the best book about Charlotte I've read, that would be The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte, but it was a solid read that did fill in some gaps for this reader.
