Born on January 17, 1820, in Thornton, Yorkshire, England, Anne Brontë wrote a book of poetry with her sisters Charlotte and Emily. She worked as a governess too. Her 1847 novel, Agnes Grey, was inspired by her experiences. Her subsequent novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the story of a woman leaving her abusive husband, was published the following year.

Anne Brontë,
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
