  • A lively, intelligent tribute to the forgotten Bronte sister, Anne… Her indignation is salutary

    Lucy Hughes-Hallet, Observer
  • A fascinating and compelling read... what Ellis does extraordinarily well is to convey the emotion of her own deeply personal voyage of discovery about Anne and herself... [makes] you long to rush off and reread Anne's novels and poetry: what more could you ask for?

    Juliet Barker, Mail on Sunday
  • This is a very personal book about what the short life of Anne Bronte can tell us about wringing every drop out of existence… A great pleasure to read and a more fitting tribute to Anne than her gravestone in Scarborough.

    Daisy Goodwin, The Times
  • A lovely and imaginative investigation into a serious and searching woman whose last words were "take courage". It's inspiring stuff
