Friday Reads: Always Emily

Summer reading is in full swing, and we can’t wait to kick our feet up this weekend and dig into a great mystery. Always Emily, a YA novel by Michaela MacColl, combines so many of our great loves: historical fiction, suspense, romance, and the Brontë sisters. As bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson writes, the book is “as exhilarating as a stroll across the windswept moor…”

Emily and Charlotte Brontë are about as opposite as two sisters can be. Charlotte is practical and cautious; Emily is headstrong and imaginative. But they do have one thing in common: a love of writing. This shared passion will lead them to be two of the first published female novelists and authors of several enduring works of classic literature. But they’re not there yet. First, they have to figure out if there is a connection between a string of local burglaries, rumors that a neighbor’s death may not have been accidental, and the appearance on the moors of a mysterious and handsome stranger. The girls have a lot of knots to untangle—before someone else gets killed.
