Poet, playwright and novelist Blake Morrison evokes the lives of the
Brontë sisters, with a nod to Chekhov's Three Sisters. Against the
backdrop of a windswept northern village, three remarkable young
women live their lives brightly.
In Haworth in the 1840s, in a gloomy parsonage, where there are
neither curtains nor comforts, Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë light
up their world with outspoken wit, aspirations, dreams and ideas. And
throughout their confined lives intensely lived... they write.
With a touch of poetic licence, Morrison shows us the overwhelming
humanity, charged emotions and brooding unease which characterise the
Brontë household - and that of Chekhov's Three Sisters.
