Expected publication: March 31st 2015 by Arthur A. Levine Books
Emily Bronte loves her sisters, responsible Charlotte and quiet Anne, and her brother, tempestuous Branwell. She loves the moors that stretch all around the little village of Haworth, and wandering over them in the worst of weather. And she loves most of all the writing that brings all these things together, as she and her siblings create vast kingdoms and vivid adventures that take them deep into their imaginations.
But change is coming to Haworth, as their father falls ill and the girls must learn how to support themselves. How can Emily preserve both what she loves, and herself, and find her way into the future?
From the award-winning author of WILDTHORN, the story of a young writer finding her voice, and a window into the mind of the beloved but mysterious Emily Bronte.
Why I'm waiting:
I enjoyed Wildthorn, and I love anything that explores the lives of the Brontes. They were such an interesting group of siblings, and I always like seeing how authors imagine their lives.
