The Vanished Bride

1 Mins read

Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë become female detectives when they set off across the wet and wild Yorkshire moors in pursuit of the truth in 1845, with this crime debut for Rowan Coleman, writing as Bella Ellis. A young bride is missing from her home and all that remains is a large pool of blood and a slew of tittle tattle about her marriage. The sisters use their resourcefulness and literary imaginations when they spot unsettling details about the crime scene. There’s plenty of allusion to the Brontës’ books and characters, with a gothic and theatrical atmosphere and a tale rollicking with romance, ghosts, peril, dark deeds, madness and feminist commentary. This is the first in the Brontë sisters mystery series and received five stars from us.  Read my full review here.
