It was an attachment which would cause her "a total withdrawal for more than two years of happiness and peace of mind," she later wrote. None of Heger's letters to Charlotte survive, but he kept a few of hers, and they make clear that he wasn't as assiduous a correspondent. Things at home were bleak. The sisters took refuge in their writing, each secretly working away on masterpieces that would later be acknowledged as some of the greatest novels ever written.

In the autumn of , Charlotte came across some of Emily's poems. Emily, a strong-willed creature who had once punched her dog brutally in the eyes after he disobeyed her, was enraged at this encroachment on her privacy. To distract her, Anne produced some of her own work. The three sisters decided to approach publishers, Emily insisting it was done anonymously. Telling no one of the plan, they put together a collection of their poems. They self published, an optimistic copies of 61 poems under pseudonyms. Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, sold two copies.

While the book was in production, the sisters, who were now nightly working together around the family dining room table, submitted Wuthering Heights, by Emily, Agnes Grey by Anne and The Professor by Charlotte.

Anne and Emily's books were taken up, with them contributing to a part of the publishing costs. By now Charlotte had almost finished Jane Eyre. When the book finally reached her eventual publisher, George Smith, he read it in one day, cancelling all the day's plans. The book sold in the thousands and was reprinted within ten weeks, with Queen Victoria describing it as "that intensely interesting novel.

Unlike her sisters', Charlotte's publisher was a kind man who cherished his best-selling author, regularly inviting her to stay in his London home. As the real identity of Currer Bell became widely known, she was feted by the great and the good, a fact the reserved Charlotte found somewhat exhausting.

Satisfaction at the achievement of their lifelong literary dreams was short-lived. After her first London trip, Branwell passed away. Emily caught a cold at the funeral. Within months she too was dead. Then, unimaginably, Anne developed a persistent cough. Within eight months of her brother's death, Anne Bronte died of consumption. At that hour we used to assemble in the dining-room - we used to talk. Now I sit by myself - necessarily I am silent," wrote Charlotte, who would tell her friend and biographer Elizabeth Gaskell that she would continue alone the pacing around the dining room the sisters had engaged in every night.

Her career, she told a friend, was the only thing sustaining her. She was then working on her second published novel, Shirley, an industrial novel which did not earn her quite the rave reviews of Jane Eyre. Charlotte's earliest impressions of her future husband Arthur Bell Nicholls were that he was "good - mild and uncontentious.

Gaskell was a friend of Charlotte Bronte, and, having been invited to write the offical life, determined both to tell the truth and to honour her friend. She contacted those who had known Charlotte and travelled extensively in England and Belgium to gather material.

She wrote from a vivid accumulation of letters, interviews, and observation, establishing the details of Charlotte's life and recreating her background. Through an often difficult and demanding process, Gaskell created a vital sense of a life hidden from the world. This edition is based on the Third Edition of , revised by Gaskell. It has been collated with the manuscript, and the previous two editions, as well as with Charlotte Bront"'e's letters, and thus offers fuller information about the process of composition than any previous edition.
