"Journey to Howarth in 1846 and meet the Brontë family as you could never have imagined them in this vividly astonishing gothic novel."
Award-winning Tim Powers twists and shapes history into the most fantastical and fiercely atmospheric gothic horror featuring the Brontë family. If you know Howarth, the surrounding moors, and the timeline of the Brontës then you will feel oh-so at home, however the inclusion of the supernatural could well send your thoughts into overdrive. Be warned, you will encounter pagan gods and lycanthropy and yet it feels entirely reasonable to believe in this world. The plot wields a knife as it darts and weaves through the pages. While much time is spent dwelling in vengeance and darkness, love and hope also kept me company. Knowing the actual fate of the family doesn’t lessen the uneasiness, rather it increased as I followed their footsteps towards the end, and faithful hound Keeper is still with me. My Brother’s Keeper disturbs and it stimulates and throughly provokes as it follows the Brontës into torment.
