The Brontes by Catherine Brighton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


All children play at make-believe, but Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne Bronte went one step further, creating and chronicling their own charmed universe in the remote parsonage at Haworth. Thrilling encounters on the bleak Yorkshire moors, imaginary battles, hours absorbed in making miniature books of poems and stories. Scene by scene, Catherine Brighton's haunting images reveal the secret childhood of one of literature's most unusual households - a family touched by genius.

Author Biography

Catherine Brighton is a much-exhibited illustrator whose shows have included Quentin Blake's travelling exhibitions Box of Delights, Pictures: English Children's Illustrators in Bologna, and the American Society of Illustrators Annual Exhibition in New York. She studied at St Martin's School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Her childhood biographies include Five Secrets in a Box, the story of Galileo's daughter, Virginia; and Nijinsky, the early life of the Russian ballet dancer. Mozart, her first book for Frances Lincoln, was described by The Junior Bookshelf as "a volume of real enchantment".
