If you love to write and enjoy books about female friendships then A Secret Sisterhood may be the book for you. This book explores the close female friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot and Virginia Woolf. I have only read Jane Eyre and Uncle Tom’s Cabin, so I still have a long way to go when it comes to reading more classics. This book was fascinating getting to read about fellow authors these ladies were friends with that weren’t highly publicized. I had no clue George Eliot was friends with Harriet Beecher Stowe. There are many fascinating stories in this book. If you love classics and history then I think this book will be very satisfying.
I received an ARC of A Secret Sisterhood by Emily Midorikawa and Emma Sweeney via NetGalley for free in exchange for my feedback. I found a finished library edition that I read of it. This book was fascinating, intense at times and a neat doorway into what friendships were like when your friend choice is not always viewed as socially acceptable.
