Emily Brontë, Charlotte’s younger sister, always gets all the attention. She is rebellious, outgoing, and headstrong, whereas Charlotte has a more cautious and practical side. The two sisters are as different as can be, except for one thing: their love for writing. When odd things start happening, can the two not-yet-famous writers put aside their differences and work together to solve the mystery, and maybe even save a life or two?
I thought Always Emily was a good book. The storyline kept moving, but it was a little bit predictable. Also, the title didn’t quite fit the whole book. The attention Emily gets isn’t the focus of the story, the mystery is. It was interesting getting a bit of background information on the two famous sisters. MacColl explains at the end that she changed some of the information, but most of it was true to history.
