The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (Hardcover)
I love the Bronte Sisters and find Anne to be talked over or in the shadow of her two talented sisters. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall deserves more love as it carefully blends the oddness/gothic qualities of the Bronte sisters while reading more like a Jane Austen novel.— Jesse
From the author of Hamnet, with this novel set in Renaissance Italy, we get a perfectly paced page-turner. A young daughter married a duke at a powerful court. Will he love her? Will he kill her? Great read!— Holly

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte, tells the story of young Helen Graham's disastrous marriage to the dashing drunkard Arthur Huntingdon--said to be modeled on the author's brother Branwell--and her flight from him to the seclusion of Wildfell Hall. Pursued by Gilbert Markham, who is in love with her, Graham refuses him and, by way of explanation, gives him her journal. There he reads of her wretched married life. Eventually, after Huntingdon's death, they marry.Anne Bronte's second but last novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was first published in 1848 under the pseudonym of Acton Bell, and was an immediate success. It is now considered to be the one of the first feminist novels.
