In Search of Anne Bronte, Hardback


Anne Bronte, the youngest and most enigmatic of the Bronte sisters, remains a bestselling author nearly two centuries after her death.

The brilliance of her two novels - Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - and her poetry belies the quiet, yet courageous girl who often lived in the shadows of her more celebrated sisters.

Yet her writing was the most revolutionary of all the Brontes, pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable.

This revealing new biography opens Anne's most private life to a new audience and shows the true nature of her relationship with her sister Charlotte. 'Holland has enormous affection for Anne Bronte, and his excellent book is filled with passion and pathos.

Its triumph is that Anne is given voice and is no longer swamped by her siblings.' - Roger Lewis, The Mail On Sunday 'Holland's way of telling about Anne Bronte's final illness and last days is particularly touching while avoiding the easy slide into parable territory.

This new biography proves that Anne Bronte's afterlife is just like her life: not about quantity but about quality.' - Bronte Blog Book Review
