“This darn good fictional biography of the Bronte sisters has just the right amount of historical authenticity to make you believe it. The character of Emily is strong, vibrant, and interesting, and I had no trouble at all imagining her writing Wuthering Heights. Well done!”
— Karen M. Frank, Northshire Bookstore, Manchester Center, VT

Enigmatic, intelligent, and fiercely independent, Emily Bront refuses to bow to the conventions of her day. She is distrustful of marriage, prefers freedom above all else, and walks alone at night on the moors above the isolated rural village of Haworth. But Emily's life is turned upside down by the arrival of an idealistic clergyman named William Weightman. A heart-wrenching love story, Emily's Ghost plumbs the depths of faith, longing, and romantic solitude.
