Summary

In The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Anne Bronte created a strong, modern heroine who challenged the prevailing morals and politics of the Victorian era.
When Helen Graham shut her bedroom door on her abusive, drunken husband, it was a door-slam heard around the world. Escaping to Wildfell Hall after a loveless marriage, Helen, our mysterious tenant, lives in quiet seclusion, while her reclusive nature quickly becomes the subject of local gossip.
Gilbert Markham, a young farmer, becomes intrigued with Ms. Graham and soon discovers the shocking secrets of her dark past.

Great read, great narration

I enjoyed this novel - so well written, of course! The audio was very good. I like the tone of both readers. I also like that you have used two readers for the main characters.

Beautiful

What a treat! The narrators are perfectly matched to the material, and the material itself is shot through with love and sunlight. Not to say there's no suffering: the novel contains a gripping account of a relationship gone horribly wrong, and of the ravages of alcohol and adultery. But for all that, it doesn't have the tinge of gothic horror that marks other works by members of the Brontë family. If there's a flaw, it's that the male narrator, Gilbert Markham, isn't half as mature as he seems to think he is. He's right when he says he doesn't deserve to be happy. But Helen Huntingdon DOES deserve it. She is a strong, determined woman, an utter contrast to the stereotypical Victorian heroine, and her story is a delight to hear.

Had to stop!

As much as I love the Bronte's- too much filler- I was totally immersed for the entire first quarter- after that it becomes so wordy and goes on so long it becomes extremely frustrating, I hope it ends well but I could not continue .
