Praise for Miss Brontë ~

“Biographers have long examined the emotional life of Charlotte Brontë, as revealed in her novels… But the emphasis here is on Charlotte’s unrequited love, first for her French professor and later for her publisher, and the man whose love for her grows over the years… Gael sprinkles Charlotte’s actual letters into this portrayal of the poverty and isolation of the Brontë family, and the tragedies that beset it, in language that seems true to the times. A moving view of a literary giant and the emotion that fueled her work.” ~Booklist

“Although the narrative hews very closely to the known facts, it is to newcomer Gael’s credit that she not only builds suspense around these questions but also draws a tear when we learn Charlotte’s eventual fate. A must-read for Brontë aficionados and anyone interested in the lives and concerns of Victorian women.” ~Kirkus

“Gael makes Charlotte's transformation… and the revelations about Arthur's character as interesting as the earlier turmoil that dominates many novels about the famous family. Brontë devotees and those interested in British literary life will enjoy this novel, which also has book club potential.” ~Library Journal

“A tremendous treat for readers like me who loved Jane Eyre. Based on the fascinating lives of the Brontës, Juliet Gael’s superb Romancing Miss Brontë is entirely captivating and enormously touching.” ~Carol Goodman, author of Arcadia Falls

“For fans of the Brontës, it is hard to imagine a more compelling glance behind the curtain of history at the remote, passionate lives of Charlotte, Emily, Anne and their arrogant, delinquent brother. A fascinating page turner, full of compassion and insight, entirely worthy of its mighty subjects.” ~Theresa Rebeck, author of Three Girls and Their Brother


“...Speaking of brilliant, ROMANCING MISS BRONTË is nothing short of perfect. I loved every page and hated for the book to end. The author’s impeccable research and her excellent prose are a dynamite combination and made the tragic life of Miss Brontë immensely readable and extremely interesting.

...As a debut novel, Ms. Gael has written a delightfully thorough peek into the lives of the Brontë sisters and especially Charlotte’s brief, sterling rise as a woman author in a man’s world. Brava.”
