The Window on the Moor by Una McCormack

Emily and her sisters once told each other fables of warring kingdoms: wicked princes, noble dukes, and their battling armies. Now she wanders the moors of her childhood alone, remembering those tales. The TARDIS arrives amid a strange civil war, with prisons made of glass and cities stalked by terrifying beasts. As windows open between worlds, stories and storyteller meet, and Rose comes face to face with Emily Brontë.
Gallifrey Archive reviews the audiobook:
Emily Brontë is one hell of a woman. Una McCormark is a hell of a woman. Rose Tyler is one hell of a woman. This story, within the pre-title sequence seems to be filled with powerful women. This is how it should be (and I anticipate The Time Ladies will review this too). (...)
I have to admit that I was somewhat taken aback by how bleak this story is and how early it’s bleakness comes into play. I’m going to have to plead ignorance and say I don’t know too much about the Brontë sisters or their works, but I’m fairly certain that they’re known for a bit of bleakness, so it seems to fit.
Rose and her saviour end up finding a teleportation mist and are whisked away to one of the best places in the universe. Yorkshire. It seems as if Emily Brontë was expecting someone too. (Daniel Whitaker)
