Gilbert Markham is deeply intrigued by Helen Graham, a beautiful and secretive young woman who has moved into nearby Wildfell Hall with her young son. He is quick to offer Helen his friendship, but when her reclusive behaviour becomes the subject of local gossip and speculation, Gilbert begins to wonder whether his trust in her has been misplaced. It is only when she allows Gilbert to read her diary that the truth is revealed and the shocking details of the disastrous marriage she has left behind emerge. Told with great immediacy, combined with wit and irony, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a powerful depiction of a woman's fight for domestic independence and creative freedom.

Very under-rated writer. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is my favourite Bronte book.

this thread 🫶 it's just barely under 600, but have to throw in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the most underrated Brontë novel that is so shockingly modern it could've been written today. We love Anne ❣️
