2020 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anne Bronte, the youngest of the famed Bronte sisters. Only now is she gaining recognition as a great writer in her own right, with her novels Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall deservedly standing alongside those of Charlotte and Emily Bronte.

Crave the Rose takes a fresh look at Anne, revealing a woman whose work was more radical than that of her sisters, and which is therefore as relevant today as it has ever been. Alongside a biography of Anne's remarkable, but tragically short, life, this book contains a comprehensive selection of first-person encounters with the Brontes from 19th-century newspapers and archives, giving a fresh insight into the real character of Anne and her family. Also contained exclusively within this landmark book is a newly-discovered essay by Anne Bronte - what may well be the last words that she ever wrote, in print here for the first time.
