AndThe Tenant of Wildfell Hallby Anne Brontë


Penguin Books

“I think the lack of respect this book receives is because it was kind of censored at the time for being too progressive, considering this book came out in the mid-1800s. It’s a story about a woman leaving a toxic relationship to raise her son on her own, making it so ahead of its time. Anne unabashedly calls out double standards and gender inequality as she sees them, making a statement early on about how we try to protect young girls from the world while letting “boys be boys.” She has awokeview on the world that feels fresh and current.” —baileyd4b5aa8108

Get it on Amazon for $3.95+, Barnes & Noble for $13.17+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.
