Om forfatteren

Anne Bronte was the daughter of an impoverished clergyman of Haworth in Yorkshire, England. Considered by many critics as the least talented of the Bronte sisters, Anne wrote two novels. Agnes Grey (1847) is the story of a governess, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848), is a tale of the evils of vis mere drink and profligacy. Her acquaintance with the sin and wickedness shown in her novels was so astounding that Charlotte Bronte saw fit to explain in a preface that the source of her sister's knowledge of evil was their brother Branwell's dissolute ways. A habitue of drink and drugs, he finally became an addict. Anne Bronte's other notable work is her Complete Poems. Anne Bronte died in 1849. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Kort biografi
Anne was the youngest of the Brontë siblings. She worked as a governess and wrote stories and poetry with her sisters. Her literary reputation is based mainly on the two novels she published before her untimely death at age 29. Like her older sisters, she used a masculine-sounding pseudonym, Acton Bell, for publication of her writing because of 19th-century prejudice against female authors.

Anmeldelser

a realistic & plain love story. The main character is normal and there isn't anything extravagant about the whole thing. Which makes this book a very nice read, it's a nice change to all the drama filled romance novels you find today.
It was charming & wonderful.
