The World Within product reviews

Emily Bronte loves her sisters, responsible Charlotte and quiet Anne, and her brother, tempestuous Branwell. She loves the moors that stretch all around her home and the village of Haworth, and she loves wandering over them even in the worst of weather. Most of all, she loves the writing that she and her siblings share, creating imaginary kingdoms, vivid characters, and exciting adventures.

But change comes to the family when their beloved father falls ill, and Emily's happy, isolated world crumbles. Charlotte is sent away to school, where she meets new friends and new ideas. Branwell is growing up and becoming absorbed in his own concerns, with no time for little sisters. And even dependable Anne, in the end, lets Emily down. She is left alone to face her enemies - old insecurities from the past that haunt Emily, and threaten to overwhelm her.

Will Emily be able to conquer her fears? Will she come to terms with the power of nature that, for all its wild beauty, also brings death and destruction? Will she be able to master the fierce passions of her imagination and find her own true voice?

I love reading and will read anything with a good story and stories based on real people are a favorite of mine. I must admit that I haven't read Wuthering Heights but I have obviously heard of it.

I didn't do any research before reading the book and found the book easy to read but I was expecting a tragic event to take place but Emily was portrayed as a normal teenager and she had to deal with being a poor pastor's daughter who was exceptionally shy and some of the funniest moments in the book was when she was dealing with boys and wondering how they could possibly like her. She was just a normal person who would escape to an imaginary world.

I did Google Emily Bronte and found that most of what the book said about her was actually true. I hope that Jane Eagland does a boom about the rest of the family as her style of writing was easy to read and mostly stick to the facts. I will let my kids read this book in a few years and reading this book has motivated me to finally read Wuthering Heights.

I will be looking out for more books by this author.

I love Emily Bronte's book Wuthering Heights and have done research before into her life so when a chance to review The world within came up I jumped at it. I was very keen to see how Jane Eagland would paint her and her sisters early life and if it would be true to what I already know about her.

While Jane Eagland has written a fictional novel on the Bronte sister's life, she has done a wonderful job at researching the sisters. She has taken what is known about them and woven it into a very insightful and amusing novel. She brings to life the remote world the grew up in up as well as highlighting the different opportunities for men and woman at the time. I love that at the end of the book Jane address that fact the story is based on her vision of Emily.

I really enjoyed the book and found it an easy read, my 12 year old niece is now reading it and she is enjoying it as well. There are some parts of the book which I found a little slow going but they were all needed to help you understand the characters and build the story. I would love for Jane to write about the other sisters as I have enjoyed her vision of Emily. As I have never heard of Jane Eagland before I have now looked up her other books so I can read them as well.
