Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne. The Bronte 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, transporting them into the glittering world of Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal.

As they grow older, the children realise that not only are they imagining these glorious places, they are also truly crossing over, as both inhabitants and creators.

When one imagined character, the Earl of Northangerland, follows Emily back home, Emily becomes caught up in a tortured romance with him, and it is only when Anne disappears that Charlotte realises she and her siblings must get to the bottom of their abilities in order to save Anne and possibly themselves.

Gorgeously written and meticulously researched, Worlds of Ink and Shadow brings to life the upbringing of one of history's most celebrated literary families.
