About the Book

Anne Bronte, an English novelist, published her first book, Agnes Grey, in 1847. (writing under the pen name of "Acton Bell").
Agnes Grey is upset that she is treated like a kid by everyone. She finally secures a position with the Bloomfield family as a governess. Agnes had no idea that the Bloomfields would be as wealthy and vicious as they are. The eldest Bloomfield child, Tom, is very cruel and has even tortured small animals.
Agnes starts by going to see Nancy Brown, a frail elderly woman who needs assistance reading the Bible. When she first meets Mr. Edward Weston, the new curate, he chooses some wild primroses for her.
Agnes receives a note from Mary, who is now wed to Mr. Richardson, the clergyman of a parish close to their house. Mary is Agnes' sister. Mary begs Agnes to come and informs her that their father is dying. When Agnes finally arrives, her father is already dead. She departs from Ashby Park and goes back home. She meets Mr. Weston a few months after she first comes; he had been seeking her ever since he moved to the neighborhood parsonage. They had three kids together after he makes the marriage proposal.

About Author

Anne Bronte

Anne Brontë was an English novelist and poet, and the youngest member of the literary family. Acton Bell was Anne Bronte's pseudonym when writing. The youngest of the Brontë children and born on January 17, 1820, was Anne Branwell Branwell. She was born and raised in a little community seven miles (11 kilometers) from Haworth Parsonage, where she was baptized. When Anne was just a year old, her mother Maria Branwell passed away; her father Patrick attempted remarriage but was unsuccessful. Anne, Emily, and Branwell Branwell frequently read books from their father's extensive collection as well as pieces from The Edinburgh Review, Fraser's Magazine, and Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine. John Bradley of Keighley taught them painting while Anne studied piano and drawing at home. At age 29, Anne passed away on May 28, 1849, with Charlotte and Ellen Nussey at her side. After the burial service on May 30, Anne's remains were transported to Scarborough. To attend his daughter's burial, Anne Bronte's father could not have traveled the 110 km (70 mi) distance from Haworth to Scarborough. Under the castle walls and with a view of the bay, Anne was laid to rest at St. Mary's graveyard. Here lie the bones of Anne Bronte, daughter of the Rev. P. Bronte, incumbent of Haworth, Yorkshire, according to the stone Charlotte had put over her grave.
