Summary

The story of the Brontë family is one of incredible romance, immense genius, and haunting sadness.
From humble beginnings in Ireland the Rev. Patrick Brontë rose to the very heart of the reforming evangelical movement of the 19th century; he was sponsored at Cambridge University in England by its great leader William Wilberforce. Patrick's daughters Emily, Charlotte and Anne came onto the pages of literary history with, amongst other work, their novels Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall which now grip the imagination of millions of people in the 21st century. Branwell, the most promising of Patrick s children is mourned for the wreck of his talent. All had the fire of deep emotions running in their veins.

In The Brontës: Veins Running Fire, Derick Bingham seeks to trace the influence of Patrick Brontë's unfaltering evangelical faith on the lives and work of all his children. Here is faith in the face of unremitting tragedy, imagination soaring out of pitiful sadness and doubt vying with hope for dominance. The world will truly never see such a literary family again whose life story is very bit as fascinating as their fiction.

A Christian insight into the Bronte Family

Having lived for many years a few short of miles from the Bronte Irish homeland near Rathfriland County Down I found this audiobook extremely interesting, indeed it was more than interesting, it was an insight into the Christian background to Rev Patrick Bronte and his talented family which I could not put down. It then traces the story of the family through all the sadness which came their way and out of which sorrow the well known novels came. This book by the late Derick Bingham (who knew this area well) is very well written and full of human and spiritual interest. It is well narrated with a pace which brought the story to life for me. There was not a boring moment.
