Publisher's Summary

At long last, the untold story of the mysterious Mrs Brontë.

They were from different lands, different worlds almost.

The chances of Cornish gentlewoman Maria Branwell even meeting the poor Irish curate Patrick Brontë in Regency England, let alone falling passionately in love, were remote. Yet Maria and Patrick did meet, making a life together in the heartland of the industrial revolution.

An unlikely romance and novel wedding were soon followed by the birth of six children. They included Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë, the most gifted literary siblings the world has ever known. Yet Maria has remained an enigma, while the fame of her family spread across the world. 

It is time to bring her out of the shadows.

Captavating, well written and extraordinary

i thought i knew everything about the brontes expecially living locally to haworth and thornton in bradford and having visited the parsonage many times. however this book has reignited my interest in the brontes. The untold story of the matriarch of the brontes is captivating and so well written. Never has her story been told before. i must congratulate the author sharon wright in bringing maria to life and placing her firmly in the Brontes story.

A must for bronte lovers.

Beautifully written and narrated. A fascinating background hardly explored. A real keeper, well worthy of listening to again and again. A real eye opener, truly.
