For 200 years Maria Branwell's contribution to the success of her literary daughters - Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte - has been largely overlooked. Now in this first biography of Maria, author and journalist, Sharon Wright, reveals an astonishing life full of scandal and sorrow, passion and adventure. How did a gentlewoman from Cornwall end up marrying a poor Irish curate, Patrick Bronte, in Yorkshire? What was her influence on her talented daughters? Wright uncovers the incredible story of the mother of the Brontes.
