The first book of the year to open the Anne Brontë bicentenary celebrations:
Crave the Rose: Anne Brontë at 200
by Nick Holland
Valley Press
ISBN: 9781912436361
January 2020(*)

Includes an up-to-date biography, contemporary writing about Anne, and a previously-unpublished essay thought to be her final written work.
2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anne Brontë, the youngest of the famed Brontë sisters. Only now is she gaining recognition as a great writer in her own right, and her novels Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall deserve to stand alongside those of Charlotte and Emily Brontë.
Crave the Rose: Anne Brontë At 200 takes a fresh look at Anne Brontë, revealing a woman whose work was more radical than that of her sisters, and which is therefore as relevant today as it has ever been. Alongside a biography of Anne's remarkable, but tragically short, life it contains a comprehensive selection of first-person encounters with the Brontës from 19th century newspapers and archives, giving a fresh insight into the real character of Anne and her family. Also contained exclusively within this landmark book is a newly discovered essay by Anne Brontë – never before seen in print, they are probably the last words that she ever wrote.
(*) Quoting from Nick Holland's blog:
 It’s worth pointing out that whilst Amazon seems to say that it’s out on the 2nd (...) it will be a little later than this as the festive period have slowed down the usual typesetting, printing and distribution service with Valley Press. Fear not, however, it will be out later in January, hopefully in time for Anne’s 200th birthday
