The Bronte sisters – Charlotte, Emily and Anne – are some of the best-known, and best-loved, English authors.
But less well-known were the two other Bronte sisters, Maria and Elizabeth, who died before reaching adulthood, and their brother Branwell, who was haunted by his own demons until his death in his thirties.
After the death of Maria and Elizabeth, the four remaining children returned to its cheerless rooms and dreamed their wild and shining fantasies, bound together by a mutual passion for literature and for their beloved moors.
Forced by poverty to emerge from Haworth to earn their living, the sisters were set free to write their extraordinary novels.
But for their brother, it meant ruin.
