Written when she was 26, Agnes Grey is Anne Bronte's first novel. It tells the story of a rector's daughter who has to earn her living as a governess. Drawing directly from her own experiences, Anne Bronte set out to describe the immense pressures that the governess' life involved: the frustration, the isolation, and the insensitive and cruel treatment on the part of employers and their families.

Too often, Anne Bronte has been portrayed as a saintly, self-effacing shadow of her elder sisters. But clearly she possessed resources of courage and determination equal to theirs, together with a sweetness that was all her own.

    " I had never read any of Anne's work before and I was pleasantly surprised to find it very level-headed, straightforward, and honest. Nothing at all crazily romantic like her sisters'. "

    " I liked this book, but not as much as I loved "Jane Eyre" or "Whuthering Heights". It's a more of a quite romance. "

    " More evidence that the Bronte sisters could sure write. This account of working as a governess wouldn't make anyone want to take on the job. Anne Bronte talks about religion in a moral rather than judgemental way that shows how to determine whether or not one has character. Her emphasis on the way one treats animals and people of a lower class should make this required reading today. "
