In Victorian times, an unmarried woman of good breeding didn't have much choice of vocation. Agnes Grey, a single woman, becomes a governess because it is one of the few respectable occupations open to her. Ill treated by her employers, she finds that the only person who treats her well is the curate, Mr. Weston. Told in a simple, realistic style, and drawing on Anne Brontë's own experiences as governess at Thorp Green Hall near York, this first novel by Anne Brontë depicts the small humiliations and inhumanity a governess was forced to endure, and in so doing is a powerful indictment of Victorian society.

    " It is a little slow, but overall, it is a fast read so you hardly notice how slow it is. I really liked the fact that it was not a fairytale, but gave an honest happy ending. "

    " Out of Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and this book this was my favorite. I was actually shocked that it was so much less popular. It is a great romance classic! "

    " Agnes Grey was a bit slow-going for the first half of the book. Consisting mostly of descriptions of her charges as a governess for two different families. Once she meets the young curate, Edward Weston, things become a bit more interesting. Overall, a good read. "

    " Not super great; too much summary and not enough depth. "
