All children play at make-believe, but Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne Bronte went one step further, creating and chronicling their own charmed universe in the remote parsonage at Haworth. Thrilling encounters on the bleak Yorkshire moors, imaginary battles, hours absorbed in making miniature books of poems and stories. Scene by scene, Catherine Brighton's haunting images reveal the secret childhood of one of literature's most unusual households - a family touched by genius.
