Every emotion - from tears to chuckling outloud make listening to this book entertaining and fun. It opens a door into, not just life at the time of the Bronte's, Charlotte's struggles and adventures in her life, her writing and styles of her times. I was glad Syrie James included senerios of accepting the plight of being a woman at that time, working around its handicap and the start of slow progression to change women's status. Don't miss this book!

This is my absolute favorite book and an audio narration!!! A lovely, sad, witty, and engaging heart full story of the challenging life of one of the most famous writers, it captivates the reader from the opening sentence and holds firm until the last word. I highly recommend this marvelous book that I listened to twice a year, and have just finished for the fifth (!) time. Normally, I never re-read books.
