Synopsis

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector’s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector’s Library are books to love and treasure.

Drawing on her own experience, Anne Brontë exposes the isolated world of a nineteenth-century governess in her debut novel, Agnes Grey. This edition is introduced by historian and biographer Juliet Barker.

When Agnes Grey’s family falls on hard times she insists on being allowed to find work as a governess, but her idealistic spirit is challenged in her first position with the unruly Bloomfield children and their callous parents. She then moves on to work for the even wealthier Murray family, whose scheming daughters jeopardize the only bright spot in Agnes’s life, Edward Weston.

The most perfect prose narrative in English letters
