When fifteen-year-old Heather Jane Bell is diagnosed with
alopecia and her hair starts falling out in clumps, she wants nothing
more than to escape her home in London and disappear off the face of the
Heather gets her wish when her concerned parents send her to
stay with a great-aunt in West Yorkshire. But shortly after she arrives,
Heather becomes lost on the moors and is swept through the mist back to
the year 1833. There she encounters fifteen-year-old Emily Bronte and
is given refuge in the Bronte Parsonage.
Unaware of her host family’s genius and future fame, Heather
struggles to cope with alopecia amongst strangers in a world foreign to
her. While Heather finds comfort and strength in her growing friendship
with Emily and in the embrace of the close-knit Bronte family, her
emotions are stretched to the limit when she falls for Emily’s brilliant
but troubled brother, Branwell.
Will Heather find her way back to the comforts and
conveniences of the twenty-first century? Or will destiny keep her in
the harsh world of nineteenth-century Haworth?
