Read from April 20 to July 15, 2012

Although I didn't enjoy this as much as Tenant of Wildfell Hall, it was still a pleasurable read as I settled into what governess life was like and Anne's funny sarcastic observations about the people she encountered. Her time as a governess actually reminded me of some babysitting experiences (unfortunately??) and I enjoyed her thoughts, many of which I related to though not nearly as eloquently.

Anne really is the underrated sister of the three; she has a lot of talent and wit. Even her own sister didn't appreciate her, as proven in the almost painful to read biographical note that Charlotte had prepared. If anything, Anne was the most progressive and thoughtful of the three sisters; it is too bad that her talent still remains unappreciated all these years later.
