A new edition of a biography first published in 2003 will be published next month:
The Brontë Family
Passionate Literary Geniuses
by Karen Kenyon
Endeavour Media
ISBN 9780822500711
Pub Date 01 Jul 2018

The authors of such literary classics as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and Agnes Grey, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë were extraordinary not only because they were successful female writers in Victorian England, but also because they were sisters.
Growing up, all three sisters’ writings were significantly influenced by each other, but perhaps most importantly by their troubled brother, Branwell.
This fascinating account of each sister’s unconventional life, astounding talent, and tragic death draws readers into the minds of the gifted authors whose passionate tales have enthralled readers for more than a century and whose voices still resonate with modern readers.
The new edition comes with a brand new introduction from the author herself, as well as some new pictures interspersed with those from the original edition.
EDIT: The Brontë Babe Blog posts about this book.
