Happy Birthday to novelist, Emily Bronte, born this day in 1818!

Emily, along with her two older sisters, Anne & Charlotte became published authors in 1847. 

Charlotte’s novel “Jane Eyre” was published first in early 1847, Anne’s novel “Agnes Grey” and Emily’s now classic novel, “Wuthering Heights” were published in late 1847. A second edition of “Wuthering Heights”, published in 1850, included a preface by Charlotte, explaining that the book was superior to her own “Jane Eyre”.
