The Brontë Sisters
A year after Patrick's spinster sister moved in with the family, Maria, Elizabeth, Charlotte and Emily are all sent to boarding school in Lancashire. Charlotte begins teaching at the Haworth Sunday school after completing her studies. After years of producing unpublished work with Branwell, Emily and Anne, Charlotte sends her poems to Robert Southey, Poet Laureate, and tells him she wishes 'to be for ever known'.
Branwell writes to Wordsworth. Charlotte sends part of a novel 'Ashworth' to Harley Coleridge, who sends a discouraging reply. Charlotte reveals her true identity.
Branwell dies of drink and drug abuse. Emily dies of consumption.
Charlotte and her father continue to live at the parsonage. Her second novel, Shirley, is published. Charlotte contacts other famous writers to ease her grief. Patrick dies, aged Arthur Nicholls returns to Ireland, and remarries three years later.

But now, the story of their mother has finally been unfolded by the masterful Sharon Wright. A definite recommend! Rating : 5 out of 5 stars This short biography shows Maria's legacy in her remarkable family, her literary aspirations, Evangelistic faith, and deep love for Patrick Bronte and their children I enjoyed this engaging portrait of the Mother of the Brontes and it added to my understanding of this remarkable family.
For me, this book was very interesting. I have to admit that anything I learnt about the Brontes parentage revolved more around their father who outlived Maria and all of his children. It was great to see a book written with their mother in mind for a change. Rating : 5 out of 5 stars The Mother of the Brontes by Sharon Wright is a delightful novel focussing on the mother, Maria Branwell the mother of what would be 3 of the most famous literary women in modern history, and her relationship and marriage to Patrick Bronte.
I, like many others, did not know anything about Maria, only her famous children. It is such a joy to read and learn about an enigma of the past and to finally add a light to a person that has been overlooked. I came away from this novel knowing much more, not only of Maria herself, but also as to a basis of how Charlotte, Anne, and Emily were who they were.
It was also so sad to know how short her life came to be, how untimely her death. This was a fabulous read that I was able to complete in 2 days. A must for anyone that loves history and also British literature. Sharon Wright is an award-winning journalist and playwright.
