The Brontë Sisters: 03/01/14
The Brontë Sisters by Catherine Reef is a young adult biography of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne. To a lesser degree it's also about their father and brother, Bramwell.
The book would work well in an English literature course where Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, or Agnes Grey are being taught. The book fills in the blanks but expects an understanding of the context of when the women lived. It includes illustrations of the sisters (many done by Bramwell), and photographs of the area where they lived.
For someone new to the Brontës, The Brontë Sisters is a rather dry read. I don't see it being the biography that sparks a new love of their work.
