The book contains some inaccuracies that are rather obvious to someone informed about the life of Charlotte Bronte. However, if you are not at all familiar with any of her biographies and like "Jane Eyre," this is an interesting book to read that might hopefully encourage you to read more about this extraordinary writer.
