The Brontes' Christmas
A book compiled with excerpts of writings of the three Bronte Sisters as well as counterparts of their day. It describes the sober celebrations that the sisters might have shared under the watchful eye of their Aunt Bramwell and their father and reveals the tradition Charlotte had of taking spice cake to families around her. A chance to read stories and poetry of the season.
An enjoyable anthology of stories and poetry which I enjoyed reading spread across the 12 Days of Christmas.
