In contrast to the Barker view
, Harman takes a very sympathetic approach towards Charlotte here while still staying close to the facts. I can get a bit leery about Brontë biographies after being utterly appalled by Nick Holland’s irresponsible use of source material in his book on Anne but I was impressed with how Harman dealt with the evidence at her disposal. I don’t know if I agree with absolutely everything but I ended up with a gentler view of this complex woman, who seems to have lived her life pursued by ghosts.
What were other people’s impressions?
