    In this novel MrMorgan does it again he achieves sublime precision to what the Brontë sisters' lives might have been mastering the art of combining fiction with reality The result this achingly real tale of sorrowAlthough not a biographical work it's incredibly easy to believe his version of the facts Fiction? Maybe I think some events described must have been invented but still Morgan shows his deep understa

    Some time ago I read The King's Touch by Jude Morgan about James Duke of Monmouth and loved it so I'm surprised it took me so long to read Morgan's latest novel The Taste of Sorrow The Taste of Sorrow tells a familiar story that of the Bronte sisters' childhood rise to fame and premature deaths but Morgan manages to make t

    Charlotte and Emily originally published as The Taste Sorrow was a brilliant and beautiful novel I am on such a Brontë high after finishing it The novel opens with the death of the mother Maria Brontë in 1821 and ends with Charlotte's marriage to Arthur Nicholls in 1854 I'm thankful that the book ended before her death because frankly I had had enough of death at that point I'm not going to go into detail about the li

    Historical fiction about the Brontes Charlotte Anne Emily and Branwell I struggled with this book A lot The beginning was engaging and the end was simply on fire But the middle seemed weighted down with a lot of detail about the girls' times as governesses and teachers and understand uite uickly that was not what they wanted to do I'm not g

    This is my second historical fiction novel by Jude Morgan and I am officially a fan The Brontes provide amazing fodder for any author but Morgan is skilled enough to bring them to complex breathing life Wuthering Heights is one of my very favorite books and Emily and all the Brontes fascinates me When I was twenty and studying abroad in England I made a pilgrimage of sorts that involved two trains and three b

    Jude Morgan is an intensely expressive writer the Brontës are underserved by fiction and yet I never really believed this novel was about them Morgan's writing style is too purple prosey for the stark Brontës and he seemed to flit from one character to another just as I felt we were on the edge of real revelat

    It’s because I’m all wrong that I have to find something right And I found it here in this room We all did didn’t we? We found something that alters the conditions of life You write You write yourself out of it you write it out you write it right” p 258Like many other readers I suspect I first read the books by the Brontes in young adulthood and I’ve returned to them from time to time with fresh eye

Charlotte Emily Anne The Brontë sisters the drama the passion and a story that lives for everOnce upon a time there were three sisters bound by love and suffering growing up in w. In this novel MrMorgan does it again he achieves sublime precision to what the Bront sisters lives might have been mastering the art of combining fiction with reality The result this achingly real tale of sorrowAlthough not a biographical work it s incredibly easy to believe his version of the facts Fiction Maybe I think some events described must have been invented but still Morgan shows his deep understanding of the time the place and the people which crossed the path of these three unconventional sisters making the story astonishingly believableThe book begins with the death of Maria Branwell mother of the Bront children who leaves her severe husband Patrick Bront with 5 girls and an only boy to rise At first the story focuses on the surroundings of the famous girls Charlotte Emily and Anne especially in their horrible experience in Cowan Bridge boarding school where their elder sisters get mortally sick After they leave the school for good we observe little by little the way their strikingly different characters start to develop even when their paths are separated by their own experiences working as governesses or teachersIt s through effort and patience that the sisters manage adulthood always sacrificing their only passion writing for the greater good which is always in advantage of their brother Branwell A man who lives embittered by envy and a coward to face his flaws he drags all his family down with himWhat I most enjoyed about this book is the possibility it brings to understand what kind of lives lead the Bront sisters to become what they were and to write the way they did Charlotte the eldest sister always carrying her responsibility serious sharp minded afraid of showing her thoughts but daring when she needs to I was proud of her when she confronts her father about her need to write although she is dismissed like a kidEmily unearthly almost inhuman She needs nothing she lives through her imaginary worlds although she understands everything that goes around her and she is the one to give the good advice without expecting gratitude back She doesn t have expectations she only needs the moors and uietness to write to feel completeAnne dear sweet Anne The little sister the one left aside but the one who bears the burdens the one who sacrifices without complain the one who makes them a whole being who keeps them togetherOh and the bliss of reading about their creative process how they come up with the poems with the pseudonym masculine names how Charlotte finds in her real experiences the Jane Eyre she has been nurturing all along inside her how she gets inspiration in her apparent dull life Their father their brother the curateseverybody is captured in essence in some of their booksI was awkwardly moved until the last page sublime description of the last years of the sisters magnificent description of Charlotte s feelings A lesson to be learntHaving visited Haworth Parsonage a year ago and after reading this book I feel as if the Bront sisters have become alive I believe I get the picture and I understand it These poor and smart sisters pitiful and unsocial creatures who seemed to have been born only to suffer they made their dreams come true they left their footprint in English LiteratureI only wish they could know what their books have become to lots of us like me so that their short lives wouldn t seem wastedI have to thank Mr Morgan for this new feeling the urge to talk to the authors Charlotte Emiliy and Anne not to the characters Jane Cathy or Mrs GrahamThis is his achievement after allWill be reading anything written by him

The Taste of Sorrow

The fates of their parents and their other lost sisters to become than the world ever thought they could be You don't know their story but you think they do They were the Brontë. This is my second historical fiction novel by Jude Morgan and I am officially a fan The Brontes provide amazing fodder for any author but Morgan is skilled enough to bring them to complex breathing life Wuthering Heights is one of my very favorite books and Emily and all the Brontes fascinates me When I was twenty and studying abroad in England I made a pilgrimage of sorts that involved two trains and three busses the last of which was a rickety local on which my only companions were a handful of friendly Yorkshire farmers wives to Haworth and the Bronte Museum It was one of my favorite experiences in England and I spent hours walking alone on the windswept moors I could vividly imagine how such a setting produced a brilliant creative lonely introvert like Emily Morgan captures her and her siblings beautifully and they are all just as I envision them From their reclusive fascinating childhood the four siblings withdrew from a world of loss and tragedy to create an entire fictional world populated by exotic characters loosely inspired by the brother s toy figurines to their attempt to navigate the real world so much less real to them their development as writers and tragic early deaths I would recommend this book not only to Bronte fans but to any lovers of Historical Fiction or any introvert familiar with the vivid internal world of the mind and its siren call away from the pale rigidity of daily life

Ild 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. Charlotte and Emily originally published as The Taste Sorrow was a brilliant and beautiful novel I am on such a Bront high after finishing it The novel opens with the death of the mother Maria Bront in 1821 and ends with Charlotte s marriage to Arthur Nicholls in 1854 I m thankful that the book ended before her death because frankly I had had enough of death at that point I m not going to go into detail about the lives of the Bront s A simple Google search can fill you in there so I won t bore you The writing was just beautiful and I felt that Morgan totally got it From what I ve gathered the personalities of Charlotte Branwell Emily and Anne were written spot on I felt the sadness and the loneliness the heartbreak and the disappointment and finally success I loved the scenes of the three sisters sitting around the table at night writing their novels It was almost as though I was there with them holding my breath afraid of disturbing them As an avid fan of all things Bront I was not disappointed in this novel at all It completely passed my expectations above and beyond I feel as though I know them intimately now The only thing I was disappointed with was the title I hate how it was changed for the American edition because the story was than just Charlotte and Emily The title The Taste of Sorrow is much suitable This is definitely a keeper
