Early Work Was Preserved Itwork was preserved It as if the lack of verified information about Emily s life hampered the story I think I d have preferred it to be fictionalized if that made it dramatic The author brings up some interesting points about the ineuality of the choices open to Branwell the one male Bronte sibling and his sisters but Emily s story never really came to life for me The one major event besides Emily s oing away to school is Emily etting bitten by a dog she thinks may be rabid For reasons that are never fully explained she keeps it hidden from her family and waits to see if she s oing to die Meanwhile all I can think of is that there s a possibly rabid dog wandering around the moors but no that s not information you d want to share with your neighbors I enjoyed this a lot Really seemed like what the teenage Emily Bronte would have been like I wanted to like this I really did What potential it held in the beginning The Bronte sisters seemed to be lively complex characters and did you know they had a brother too and the setting was reat But time after time Emily Bronte s character just chipped away at that optimistic feeling I couldn t stand her by the end whiny childish melodramatic and basically an antisocial sourpuss It also made me frustrated when she fell from her faith and didn t see God s power when it was right in front of her So yeah that part was depressing Despite the book s better points I would not read this again At some points it was a little boring but it made up for it with the intriging plot twists I uite enjoyed Jane Eagland s The World Within I had read Emily Bront s Wuthering Heights and some of her poetry but did not know much about the author except that she was the sister of Charlotte and Anne and that she had used the pseudonym Ellis Bell I thought the author did an excellent job of bringing Emily Bront to life considering the lack of historical information regarding her and the fact that she died so young 30 years old The writing was enjoyable clear and easy to understand The book was organized well and made for a uick yet interesting read I would not hesitate to read of Ms Eagland s works in the future I m actually hoping she does a book for Charlotte and Anne as wellEven though this book is a work of
