Four Dreamers and Emily

By Stevie Davies

Published Jan 2010

Meet Eileen Nussey James – single, and a self-professed expert on Emily Brontë and her passion; Marianne Pendleton, an overworked lecturer and slave to domesticity; Timothy Whitty, the ailing widower who receives nocturnal visits from Emily’s ghost; and Sharon Mitchell, a plump young waitress drawn unwillingly into the curious world of Academia. Four dreamers, each pursuing a solitary path until a conference on the Brontës brings them together with profound and hilarious results.
