The Bronte family was a literary phenomenon unequalled before or since. Both Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights have won lofty places in the pantheon of literature and stirred the romantic sensibilities of generations of readers.
This beautifully presented leatherbound edition unites these two enduring favourites with the lesser known, but no less powerful work by their youngest sister, Anne Bronte. Drawn from Anne's own experiences as a governess, Agnes Grey offers a compelling view of Victorian chauvinism and materialism. Its inclusion makes The Bronte Sisters a must-have volume for anyone fascinated by this singularly talented family.

Author BiographyCharlotte Bronte once wrote, "It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it." Though she led a quiet life (and died young), Bronte indeed created action in her sweeping, passionate novels, such as the gothic drama Jane Eyre.
