My sister just lent me the book, "The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte" by Syrie James. It's not that often that I find a book worth reviewing and I finally found a treasure! If you are looking for a fun enjoyable read that takes you back in time to the private world of Charlotte Bronte, then this is a sure bet for you!
What an enjoyable read, full of sadness, a hint of secret passions, joy, historical facts and info all packaged in words that are written with a modern tone and echos of an era long gone by. My 13 year old daughter is reading it and has consumed half the book in one sitting! I haven't had this much fun with a book since reading the Twilight series (For non-Twilight fans, this is in no way like the series. It stands alone as a good read!). It was good, clean fun. It also contained Charlotte's own struggle to get her novels published and how she overcame! I can't wait to buy Syrie's previous publication, "The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen."Authoress, Syrie James
