Compelling, clever and hugely imaginative, it brings the three Brontë sisters magnificently to life . . . Glorious fun - I adored it!
Elegant, witty and compulsively readable - I think the Brontë sisters would have been delighted. A standout book
The Bronte sisters as sleuths - what a delicious idea! Bella Ellis has brilliantly recreated the feel and atmosphere of the Brontë novels, as well as bringing the three sisters (and their dissolute brother) vividly to life. What's more, it's a rattling good story!
An absolute delight, period perfect, a racing romp of a mystery in the best tradition of the Brontës - I loved it with my whole heart.
Clever and captivating
Wonderful . . . A treat for everyone. I loved it so very much
A joy from start to finish. I've gone from loving Charlotte Brontë to wanting to be her.
What a breath-taking concept that Rowan has completely pulled off - setting up our most beloved literary heroines as investigators in a compelling mystery that asks us to think about the constraints of women in that time . . . Fun, charming and intriguing.
The Vanished Bride hooks you from the first page with intricate characters, a wonderful plot and best of all, an amazing sense of time and place. I look forward to reading Ms. Ellis's next adventure of the Brontë Sisters
The Vanished Bride is a clever and unique historical mystery that offers fascinating insights into the lives of the Brontë siblings alongside an equally compelling atmospheric, gothic, and twisty tale. Fans of the Brontë sisters' exquisite books will find much to love as Ellis pays homage to the spirit of their rich literary oeuvre. The Vanished Bride is sure to delight historical mystery lovers
What a treat! The Vanished Bride is an absolute delight from start to finish. Dashing across the Yorkshire moors with the Brontë sisters felt like visiting dear old friends, and Bella Ellis does the most wonderful job in imagining Emily, Charlotte and Anne as 'detectors'. Beautifully written, deliciously atmospheric, and enormous fun, this series is certain to become a firm favourite
