As a member of the Bronte Society, I am always looking for books about the three sisters and their family, and I am often disappointed. Some novels are just mean slandering, others have no plausibility at all. But this book is a nice surprise. Well written, based on real events, intriguing, it shows a deep love for the Bronte sisters and a real knowledge of Bronteana. Personally I doubt that Emily and Weightman were in love, but the story depicts Emily's character most faithfully. Charlotte is the one who doesn't get any sympathy, I am afraid, but once again, she is depicted the way she proably was. And let's not forget the moors, and Keeper, and Nero ... they were all parts of Emily's world and who knows, perhaps she is still there, with them.
