Review: A Chainless Soul: A Life of Emily Brontė

User Review  - Melinda Jane Harrison - Goodreads

Liked it. Wanted more. But there isn't anymore as she left behind no papers. A shame and yet maybe that is the best. Wuthering Heights will always be that great fierce fairytale about desire anger and the intergration of the self. I am awed. Read full review
