In The Footsteps Of The Brontës By Mrs Ellis H. Chadwick – 1914

Minimum Donation €36.00

Mrs. Chadwick, a life-long devotee of the works of the Bronte sisters, has compiled a history of the Bronte family based on her years of study of the family and of her familiarity with the places in which they lived. Starting with the birth of Patrick Bronte in Ireland, in 1777, we follow him as he trains for the ministry, marries & raises his family. Continuing the study of the family for a total of 78 years to the death of Charlotte Bronte, we are afforded a comprehensive picture of the forces influencing the lives of this family of genius
