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.

Best version available on audible

This is arguably the best version of Anne Bronte’s classic tale available in audiobook format. Most other versions feature narrators that are either too old to be convincing in voicing the narrators or who can’t get to grips with the various regional accents... Piers Wehner & Katy Carmichael bring a youthful passion and vigour to their delivery which serves to enliven the very formal 19th century prose, and in giving each character a distinctive voice, are meticulously correct in their depiction of the correct accents.

The story itself has survived down the centuries for a reason - Anne Brontë builds suspense well, her characters are psychologically complex, the dialogue contains many quotable gems and her descriptions of both the natural environment and man-made edifices are vividly evocative.
