Following the tremendous success of Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë returned to pen a novel every bit as romantic and compelling as her first—but with deeper, heartier themes as she captured the social and political currents of the newly industrialized United Kingdom of 1812. Set during the chaotic height of the Napoleonic Wars, Caroline Helstone’s world is turned upside down when she meets the vivacious Shirley Keeldar. Shirley becomes a beacon of light for Caroline as the two become close friends. However, Caroline is soon shocked to discover that Shirley has won the affections of Robert Moore, the impoverished mill owner whom she loves.  Fully representative of Yorkshire life at the time, Brontë’s second novel is completely gripping, unrelenting, and utterly wrenching in its portrayal of steadfast love.

Author Bio: Charlotte Brontë

Author Bio: Charlotte Brontë

Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855) grew up in the isolated parsonage at Haworth, Yorkshire, where her father was curate. She and her sisters Emily and Anne thrived in fantasy worlds that drew on their voracious reading of Shakespeare, romantic, and gothic fiction. Charlotte was employed as a teacher and a governess before she began writing with her sisters. The Professor, her first novel, was rejected for publication until 1857, although Jane Eyre, published in 1847 under a pseudonym, achieved great success.
