it was ok
bookshelves: 2011-2015, historical-fiction
Read in May, 2012

I loved the details that were captured by the author in the portrayal of the Bronte sisters and all of their personal ordeals. These women were stronger and brighter than the men around them, and yet they were caged by class, gender, and a general lack of income. I was disapointed when I got to the end and the author protrayed Charlotte's love for her husband as not a companionship but a physcial pleasure. That their love could only come from those pleasures, when everything else portrayed by the author showed so much more depth and compassion from Charlotte Bronte than finding only pleasure in a physical relationship. Read until Charlotte marries, and then put the book down to keep a satisfying ending in your own mind.
