It makes imaginative use of recent research to redefine the personal and artistic relationship between Anne and her sisters, especially Emily. It emphasizes the five-year period when Anne is known to have been away from Howarth - a period in which she was struggling to accustom herself to a different culture and environment. Edward Chitham produces new evidence about Annes life away from home and re-examines the traumatic period before and after Branwells disgrace. It modifies the conventionally held view of Agnes Grey and reviews the evidence for Annes relationship with William Weightman. This is a biography for readers as much as scholars.
