The Genius of Emily Brontë

It makes me sad to realise I haven’t written anything about Emily Brontë yet, so far she has only been a passing mention in my posts about the Brontë family, so I wanted to express my love and appreciation for her writing in this post. Emily is seen to be tough, quiet, stubborn, a genius who was... Continue Reading →

June Monthly Favourites

Book: The Brontes by Juliet Barker Rating: Five Stars This was the first book I’ve read to start doing research for my dissertation, and it is also a book I’ve wanted to read ever since my interest in the Bronte family began.
