The Crimes of Charlotte Bronte
Well, I don't know about this book. It is a fascinating story, but the implication that Charlotte and Arthur Bell Nichols were serial killers who murdered her family is disturbing, too disturbing. I fell in love with Charlotte's work early on, and with her after I read her letters and Gaskell's biography. Unquiet soul she was, but a murderer? I wonder how anyone can imply it.
