The brief and tragic life of Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) is captured here in the beautiful letters she wrote to her best friend Ellen Nussey, as she describes the long winter evenings spent in the bleak Haworth parsonage in the company of her sisters Emily and Anne.
Having worked unhappily as a Governess and lived abroad in Brussels she returns to the moors where she writes her most successful novel Jane Eyre. She then enters the most tragic period of her life as her brother Branwell, a vicious drunk, dies in September 1848 followed within twelve months by both of her sisters Emily and Anne. Charlotte then marries her father's curate, only to die herself a few months later.
