Charlotte Brontë, the beloved author of Jane Eyre, lived a quiet and private life in her father’s Yorkshire parish. Or did she? What if a diary was uncovered that revealed her secret involvement in one of the most thrilling adventures of the 19th century?
Upon learning that she has been falsely accused of breaching her publishing contract, the normally mild-mannered Charlotte sets off for London to clear her name. But when she unintentionally witnesses a murder, Charlotte finds herself embroiled in a dangerous chain of events. With the aid of her sisters, Emily and Anne, and of the suspiciously well-informed but irresistibly attractive brother of the victim, Charlotte works to unravel a deadly web of intrigue that threatens not only her own safety but the very fabric of the British Empire. Charlotte is plunged into a perilous adventure and a passionate romance that leads her from the peaceful Yorkshire moors to the crime-infested streets of London, across the sea to the Continent, to the ports of Cornwall, the wilds of Scotland, and the palaces of Queen Victoria herself. Will Charlotte be able to stop a devious invisible villain whose schemes threaten her life, her family, and her country?

    " I started reading this book thinking it was a biography of Charlotte Bronte and realized it was a fictional account. I read it anyway and liked most of the book. There were times where I couldn't put it down, but there were a couple parts that could have been left out. However, towards the last quarter of the book. "I kept thinking....Is this book every going to end?" For the most part, I did like this book, but it won't be a book I reread. "

    " This was a fun book to read if you are a Bronte sister fan. At times it was hard for me to separate what I know is truth with the fiction, overall it was a fun and engaging read. "

    " A fun little book for people who like mysteries and romantic literature. It was the perfect read for a plane. Light and with good details from the period. "

    " I always suspected that there was more adventure in the life of the Bronte sisters than has been revealed ... Rowland's novel satisfies the vicarious desire to give Charlotte some really rousing adventures! "
