*** Winner of the Yorkshire Art Association Award***
Haworth Parsonage, Yorkshire
Isolated in a ramshackle parsonage on the Yorkshire moors, the Brontë children created their own fantasy worlds.
Charlotte, Emily, Anne and their brother Branwell spent their childhoods absorbed in creating miniature manuscripts that preserved the stories of their imaginative dreamworlds.
But though Branwell craved recognition for his literary attempts, he would be pushed aside while the careers of his sisters flourished.
This family’s extraordinary literary talents were overshadowed by extreme personal suffering.
How did three provincial sisters become household names? What personal sacrifices led to professional success?
And what led to the ultimately tragic fate for this Dark Quartet…?
Dark Quartet is a thrilling fictionalised biography of the Brontë sisters: beautifully written literary fiction set in nineteenth century Yorkshire revealing the real tragedies of the authors of the best-loved novels Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

‘The book brought me back to the times of the Brontës, and it was as exciting and passionate, as to read one of their books. It really took some time to come back to the 21st century once I finished it. If you love the Brontës, and if you love biographical fiction, this is a book for you.’ – The Content Reader
‘she has marshalled the data of four far-from-sheltered lives, and made from the tear-jerking facts--isolation, poverty, consumption, early death - a surprisingly lively novel.’ – Kirkus Review
