Bronte's mistress : a novel

Austin, Finola2020
Books
Yorkshire, 1843: Lydia Robinson - mistress of Thorp Green Hall - has lost her precious young daughter and her mother within the same year. She returns to her bleak home, grief-stricken and unmoored. With her teenage daughters rebelling, her testy mother-in-law scrutinizing her every move, and her marriage grown cold, Lydia is restless and yearning for something more. All of that changes with the arrival of her son's tutor, Branwell Brontë, brother of her daughters' governess, Miss Anne Brontë and sisters, Charlotte and Emily. Branwell has his own demons to contend with, but his presence is a breath of fresh air for Lydia. Handsome, passionate, and uninhibited by social conventions, he's also 25 to her 43. A love of poetry, music, and theatre bring mistress and tutor together.
