Probably the most shocking of the Brontës' novels, this novel had an instant and phenomenal success and is widely considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels. A mysterious widow, Mrs. Helen Graham, arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. A source of curiosity for the small community, the reticent Helen and her young son Arthur are slowly drawn into the social circles of the village.

Me? ....... Capable of many moods, and enjoying a vast range of literature. Incapable of uploading a picture and realized none of the Avatars are ......appropriate. That pretty much "tells" it all.
I am glad that I listened to this book, it was more than I expected. Bronte wrote like she thought. You can't do anything while you read this or you don't get the wonderful mental pictures she writes for you. She is not my favorite author of this timeframe but as a classic, this one is worth the time you will put into it.
Why can't real life be like books?
Ms. Aliotta reads as if she needs to use the facilities and cannot go until she finishes the book. Listening to her rapid fire delivery actually sped up my heart rate. Not worth the $2.00 it costs or the space it takes up on your ipod.
