Mrs. Gaskell portrays her friend Charlotte as a warm and generous person and this book is a must for any Bronte lover.
The main thought I took away from this book is that what today we consider melodrama was a very close imitation of real life back in the Bronte's day.
The fact that Mrs Gaskell was an excellent novelist is indisputable, however, this work proves she was also talented biographer.
This is a wonderful description of Charlotte Bronte's life written by someone who actually was her friend. It is filled with letters written by and about Charlotte Bronte.Published 4 months ago by Cheryl L. Cowen
This is a long version of Charlotte Bronte's life. I needed to skim at times (especially through the French letters). It makes us thankful for our relatively easy lives.Published 12 months ago by JR
This book is a classic in itself. In time i hope to read all the Bronte SIsters novels. This book is a wonderful biography of their lives. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Patricia M. Timmons
