In Bronte, Glyn Hughes brings to life the extraordinary young women who transmuted their childhood fantasies and their intense but unrequited passions into literature. Here is the tiny mill village of Haworth, the loneliness and beauty of the wild Yorkshire hills immortalized by Emily in Wuthering Heights and by Charlotte in Jane Eyre, and the fierce closeness of the four brilliant siblings. Combining his own imaginative powers with his profound knowledge of the family, Hughes masterfully reveals both the outer and inner lives of the Bronte women, their brother, and the father who outlived them all.

British novelist Hughes constructs biographical fiction from the quiet and tragic lives of the Brontës--sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, and their brother Branwell. Living with their widowed father on the darkly romantic Yorkshire moors, the setting for Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, the sisters and their brother lived a life circumscribed by social convention, though abundantly open to the world of imagination. The tragedy of the early deaths the family suffered provides a touching drama surrounding the writing of their passionate fiction.From the Publisher:
"It is the combination of immersion in the evidence and historical imagination that makes his novel the best likely to be written about the sisters"
- The Yorkshire Post
"An imaginative and poetic writer, with a passionate involvement with the whole Bronte scene"
"Glyn Hughes is a remarkable writer. No-one describes the Brontes' world better than he does"
