"This sad but fascinating look into the tragically short lives of the famed siblings successfully mixes facts with a fantastical premise to create a gripping and innovative story. VERDICT A strong historical fantasy that will appeal to readers who are already fans of the Brontës’ novels and spark interest among those unfamiliar with their works and lives."
(School Library Journal)
"Taking her inspiration from the Brontës’ juvenilia, Coakley offers an imaginative story of their childhood, in which the four supremely talented siblings have the power to transport themselves to the worlds of their fiction...readers familiar with the writers will likely enjoy noticing hints of the novels to come... this will nonetheless likely appeal to fans of clever literary fiction."
"All opinions are 100% honest and my own."
