Barker's selection of letters reveals the authentic voices of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, as well as their brother, Branwell, and father, Reverend Patrick Bronte. Charlotte was a letter writer of supreme ability, ranging from facetious notes and intimate gossip to artfully composed pages of literary criticism, while Emily and Anne remain tantalizingly evasive, as few of their letters are extant. The letters detail the siblings' strange, self-absorbed childhood, highlighted by wild imaginative games and the years of struggle to earn a living before Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall took the literary world by storm.The letters continue through the final years and the terrible marring of success as one by one Branwell, Emily, and Anne died tragically young and as Charlotte, battling against grief, loneliness and ill-health, emerged from anonymity to take her place in London literary society and, finally, found all too brief happiness in marriage to her father's curate.… (mais)

Anyone interested in the Brontë family will be fascinated by The Brontës: A Life in Letters. I read this book in conjunction with Juliet Barker's other book about the Brontës, The Brontës: Wild Genius on the Moors: The Story of Three Sisters, and it was a great pairing. Both books are arranged chronologically so it is easy to read them side by side. Many of the letters in this book are excerpted in the biography where they are given more context, but here you can see their full texts.

I read the Kindle version of the other book because at 1184 pages I thought the physical book would be too unwieldy for me, so it is especially nice to have the paper version of this book with its chronology and list of correspondence pages easily available for a quick reference. ( )

My slow book the last week or so has been this book, read a chapter at a time, until yesterday, when it reached critical mass and I had to continue through unchecked until it was completed. In truth, although long a fan of Jane Eyre and aware of the three sisters as authors and that they had a brother, I had no idea of the tragedy of their lives or the strong autobiographical features of all their novels. This book tells the story almost entirely with the letters of the Brontes themselves, with small bridges to describe connecting events, and is tremendously moving. ( )

A collection of letters that reads like a novel. This is a must-read for anyone intested in the story of the remarkable and tragic Bronte family. Since Charlotte had the most extensive correspondence outside the family, we hear her voice the most, but the letters give insight into her sisters Emily and Anne, brother Branwell, and father Patrick as well. Juliet Barker interjects only enough information to place each letter in context, allowing the letters to tell the story. ( )

A fantastic (and highly useful) collection for any Bronte or Victorian enthusiast. ( )

Absolutely essential for any lover of the Brontes. Some of the letters will break your heart, especially those dealing with loss and loneliness. Provides remarkable insight into the world of this creative and turbulent family.
