The youngest Bronte had a much deeper understanding of the reality of governessing than either of her sisters.  This wonderful novel shows what that reality was.  Come and meet the lovely patient Anne/Agnes as she tries to control her sometimes appalling charges.

Part of a series of literature lectures exploring great writers, their lives and their books, followed by a delicious Launde Lunch. Presented by renowned speaker Dr Jane Mackay.

The lecture lasts for approximately one hour and is followed by a two-course lunch in the Abbey Dining Room.
