In this unique and lovingly detailed biography, Victorian literature scholar Deborah Lutz illuminates the fascinating lives of the Bront s through the things they wore, stitched, and inscribed. Lutz immerses readers in a nuanced re-creation of the sisters' days while moving us chronologically through their lives. From the miniature books they made as children to the walking sticks they carried on hikes on the moors, each possession opens a window onto the sisters' world, their beloved fiction, and the Victorian era.
