Waiting on Wednesday: Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley
Release Date: January 5, 2016

I found this on a WoW post a couple of weeks ago and thought it sounded interesting.  I remember reading some works by the Bronte sisters in high school, but I honestly don't remember much about them.  I read Mrs. Poe earlier this year.  That was the first historical fiction book that I have read and I really enjoyed it.  I have been considering reading some others and this sounds like it will be right up my alley.

Worlds of Ink and Shadow: A Novel of the BrontësGoodreads Overview: 

Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Brontë siblings have always been inseparable. After all, nothing can bond four siblings quite like life in an isolated parsonage out on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds: the glittering Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal. But at what price? As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as their characters—the brooding Rogue and dashing Duke of Zamorna—refuse to let them go.

Gorgeously written and based on the Brontës’ juvenilia, Worlds of Ink & Shadow brings to life one of history’s most celebrated literary families.
