Brontë vs. Brand

I have this hyperactive imagination that likes to compare me and my sister Kristen to the Brontë sisters.  Due to this, I’ve looked into their lives past the average person.  So, today, I’d like to share a fun fact that I think can motivate everyone: Emily Brontë paid £50 to have Wuthering Heights published, as she couldn’t find anyone willing to publish the book.  She died one year later, believing the novel to be a flop.  Of course, we know it now to be one of the world’s most popular Victorian classics.  Can you imagine what E. Brontë’s reaction would be to hearing how well her “flop” took off?   If you’re craving the classics, press here or the link below!
