"Interweaves biography and reference to scholarly material with [Franklin's] own take on pertinent aspects of Charlotte's oeuvre ... [Her] witty tone makes the calibration of these two things—the pleasure of the literary enthusiastic and the scholarly—both easy and enjoyable. Franklin deftly mixes contemporary humour with reflectivity ... superbly written, exuberant." Brontë Studies Journal
