Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The lives of the whole Brontë family and the people who interacted with them in a glorious, beautifully written novel to lose yourself in. The pace is perfect, the right amount of description, no big holes of nothingness, no gaps or spaces, just a wonderful novel capturing the period with all its inequality and cruelty. Quite simply a lovely book about sisters you thought you knew about but will discover you did not.

Comparison: Sarah Dunant, Jane Borodale, Tracy Chevalier.

If you like Jude Morgan you might also like to read books by Rose Tremain, Reay Tannahill and Neal Stephenson.

Synopsis

The Taste of Sorrow by Jude Morgan

Charlotte. Emily. Anne. The Brontë sisters - the drama, the passion, and a story that lives for ever...Once upon a time there were three sisters, bound by love and suffering, growing up in wild isolation in a lonely house on the moor. Their story will astonish you: their passionate, dangerous closeness; their struggle against the world; their determination to rise above the fates of their parents and their other lost sisters, to become more than the world ever thought they could be. You don't know their story, but you think they do. They were the Brontës.
