I bought this book on my recent visit to Haworth.  I got it from the Parsonage Museum shop where there are copious amounts of Bronte books, new ones are coming out all the time and it’s hard to keep track of them.

This book one deals with the Bronte’s relationship with their village,the people who lived there and the Bronte’s  own place in the community.  The book has some old pictures which I’ve never seen before.  It is well written and informative and sets the famous writers in context to their environment.  It is a short book, (just over 150 pages or so), but it is well worth reading to get the idea of the environment the Brontes lived and ultimately died in and the history of the Church and village in its moorland setting.  If going to visit, then this book is  a must.
