Hello, and thank you for being here, I wasn't sure whether anyone would have stuck around and the fact that you have done has cheered me right up. As promised, I am back for a witter.
Today is 17th January and I cannot let this date pass unmarked. To begin with, Anne Bronte was born on this day in 1820. I have read both of her novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and if you haven't read them, I wholeheartedly recommend Agnes Grey which, in my opinion, is the better novel. Anne's work seems to be less well-known than that of her sisters, Charlotte and Emily, and I think she deserves better.
In 2010 I visited Scarborough with the Best Beloved and The Teacher. We parked the car at St Mary's Church and as we were walking through the churchyard we came across Anne's grave. I had no idea that she was buried there so it was a surprise and it felt very odd to just come across her in such a casual way. Obviously I asked the Best Beloved to take a photograph.
