Description
"If men could see us as we really are, they would be amazed," wrote Charlotte Brontė, the outwardly conventional parson's daughter who rarely met any men beyond those of the church or classroom, and whose Jane Eyre would tarnish her name with scandal and notoriety for the rest of her short life. Elizabeth Gaskell, Brontė's first biographer, attempted to clear Charlotte of the charges of passionate immorality that were leveled at her—as an unmarried woman no less. Brontė Society president Rebecca Fraser, writing 130 years later, places Brontė's life within the framework of contemporary attitudes towards woman, and considers how attitudes and perceptions of Charlotte have or haven't changed since the Victorian era.

"This rich and complex biography is elegantly composed, sensible, and compulsively readable."—Boston Globe
