The Three Ann(e)s
Everyone’s heard of the Brontë sisters – they lived at Haworth, died young, had a drunken brother and wrote novels. Clever Charlotte wrote Jane Eyre and eccentric Emily wrote Wuthering Heights.
And then there was the other one. Er – what’s her name? – ANNE.
Quiet Anne was overshadowed by her older sisters in her lifetime and has been overlooked by many readers since her death. But now, pianist Ann Airton and Brontë-buff Anne Powell set the record straight.
The Three Ann(e)s celebrates Anne Brontë’s life in her own words and in piano music which the writer knew. In the space of an hour, the youngest Brontë emerges from comparative obscurity to been seen as a courageous woman, and as daring a writer as either of her better-known siblings.
