Reader's note

Add this rare, gorgeous red 1939 edition of Charlotte Brontë's Shirley to your collection! This classic novel follows two women born into very different circumstances. Caroline lives with her uncle, because her father is dead, her mother abandoned her, and she has no money. Her uncle refuses to let her work and does not approve of her affection for Robert, a local mill owner. Shirley, on the other hand, was born into wealth. As the only child, she inherited her family's fortune after her parents died. Now she lives with a governess, Mrs. Pryor, but her independent wealth allows her to make investments and business decisions that women at the time typically were not involved in. One of her primary business investments is Robert's mill, which is suffering because Robert's father almost bankrupted it before his death. “I am anchored on a resolve you cannot shake..." The perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and rare, vintage books. Just one of the many classic, collectible, vintage books available on our online used bookstore.
