KIRKUS REVIEW

The girlhood days of the Bronte sisters, their life in Haworth Parsonage, their relationship to Papa, their brother and Aunt Branwell is the prime concern of this biography. Their life at school is described with a special chapter on Charlotte's experiences at Roe Head. How the girls created their own little books and ""magazines"", how they built their imaginary kingdom of Great Glasstown, which ambitions were realized and which were not are revealed in a biography that will interest anyone who is familiar with the literary works of Charlotte and Emily.
