Completing Charlotte Brontë's manuscript

Emma Brown by Clare Boylan

NOTE: When Charlotte Brontë, author of the classic novel "Jane Eyre," died in 1855, she left behind 20 pages of a manuscript of a new novel, along with some other scraps of pieces she had been working on. Almost 150 years later in 2003, Irish author Clare Boylan took it upon herself to complete what Charlotte had begun. Despite this 21st century written book, it is truly a classic novel, and a credit to the Charlotte Brontë name and legacy.

My complete review of this book is available on my new blog here!

"Emma Brown" by Clare Boylan is available from Amazon, The Book Depository (free worldwide delivery), new or used from Alibris or as an audiobook from an IndieBound store near you. This is a version of my review that appears on Curious Book Fans and Dooyoo (under my username TheChocolateLady) and previously appeared on {the now defunct} Yahoo! Contributor Network.
