Sadly, I seemed to only end up being annoyed at this novel. I kept waiting for the magic to arrive, but instead I took a dislike to the main character, Samantha Whipple the last surviving member of the Bronte family. Off to college at Oxford, she finds herself trapped in a dark and damp tower and having to defend all that she knows about literature to her handsome older tutor.
I was waiting for some Bronte secret to be unearthed or for the snarky Samantha to turn into a nicer character, instead I was annoyed with her from the beginning to the end. She seemed a bit frozen into a immature girl by her overbearing but dead father, home schooled by mainly reading Bronte novels which she seemed to hate
