Austin Macauley Publishers
St. John in the Wilderness is a captivating and intriguing narrative of the friendship between the Titterington and Brontë families. Alan Titterington presents the story of his ancestor John Titterington as he relates his adventures and misdeeds from the year of 1848. Beginning with the relocation of his family, from his mill operation in Halifax to the busy streets of York, John shares the details of the events that befell his family as well as the Brontë family.
With a supporting cast of Titterington family members, pub owners and customers, mill workers and buyers, the Hell-Fire Club members and the Brontë relatives, John suffers many life-changing events that challenge his success and survival. Children's deaths, illegitimate births, robberies, bar-room brawls, his paternal disowner-ship, and financial mishaps all contribute to John's ultimate fall from grace. As John explains the happenings that brought him to York, from his debtors' prison cell, he relates the reader to the corresponding occurrences in his friend, Branwell Brontë's young life, as well.

À vingt ans, Charlotte envoie ses vers au plus grand poète de son époque. Mais justement l’époque victorienne ne lui est guère favorable. Implacable, le grand homme lui conseille de rester à sa place : à la maison ! Elle et ses deux petites sœurs, Emily et Anne, sont d’ailleurs priées de s’effacer devant leur frère ainé, Branwell, que leur père considère comme un génie. Mais le presbytère familial, la lande à perte de vue, le climat austère et surtout le désir inassouvi d’amours charnelles et grandioses leur inspireront les chefs d’œuvre du romantisme anglais.
