Reader's note

A wonderful small copy of Shirley, bound in burgundy leather. Shirley is Charlotte Brontë’s second novel after her wildly popular Jane Eyre. Set in Yorkshire during the industrial depressions resulting from the Napoleonic Wars. It follows two distinctly different heroines, the shy and uncertain Caroline Helstone, trapped and tucked away in a rectory, and Shirley Keeldar, independent and vivacious, heiress to a fortune and determined to live as she pleases. This book combines the private musings of Jane Eyre, set against social commentary.
