The Bronte Mysteries, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A mystery series with a literary twist, featuring the Bronte sisters as amateur detectives.

Yorkshire, 1845

A young woman has gone missing from her home, Chester Grange, leaving no trace, save a large pool of blood in her bedroom and a slew of dark rumours about her marriage. A few miles away across the moors, the daughters of a humble parson, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte are horrified, yet intrigued.

Desperate to find out more, the sisters visit Chester Grange, where they notice several unsettling details about the crime scene: not least the absence of an investigation. Together, the young women realise that their resourcefulness, energy and boundless imaginations could help solve the mystery - and that if they don't attempt to find out what happened to Elizabeth Chester, no one else will.

The path to the truth is not an easy one, especially in a society which believes a woman's place to be in the home, not wandering the countryside looking for clues. But nothing will stop the sisters from discovering what happened to the vanished bride, even as they find their own lives are in great peril...

Praise for The Vanished Bride: An absolutely perfect winter mystery to curl up with in 2020

  • Compelling, clever and hugely imaginative, it brings the three Bronte sisters magnificently to life . . . Glorious fun - I adored it!

  • Clever and captivating

  • Wonderful . . . A treat for everyone. I loved it so very much

  • What a breath-taking concept that Rowan has completely pulled off - setting up our most beloved literary heroines as investigators in a compelling mystery that asks us to think about the constraints of women in that time . . . Fun, charming and intriguing.

  • Elegant, witty and compulsively readable - I think the Bronte sisters would have been delighted. A standout book

  • A joy from start to finish. I've gone from loving Charlotte Bronte to wanting to be her.
