PRAISE FOR CHARLOTTE BRONT BEFORE JANE EYRE

"[A] lively biography. . . . With sure-handed, irreverent illustrations, [Fawkes] captures life on the windswept moors and masters the art of Victorian side-eye. Her Charlotte Bront is as smart, brooding, and rebellious as Jane Eyre, and her volume offers an accessible introduction to and an elaboration on the Bront s' work."—Publishers Weekly
