Episode Description

The fascinating story of Emily, Charlotte, and Anne Bront , who wrote under the pen names Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell in the 1850s, when women were not allowed to publish under their own names. Charlotte, who wrote Jane Eyre, died in childbirth; and Emily's only work was the romantic classic Wuthering Heights. The sisters, who wrote to stave off boredom, published a joint volume of poetry before their untimely deaths.
