Preview of Girl with a Pen: Charlotte Bronte Summary:

Girl with a Pen is an interesting account of an unusual life. Although most biographers describe Charlotte Bronte's life as tragic, Kyle focuses on the happier moments and telescopes the unhappy events of Charlotte's adult life. Thus, this biography is inspiring, rather than depressing.

In addition, Kyle deals with problems of special concern to young readers.

When Charlotte goes away to school, she feels out of place because of her poverty and shyness. These problems and society's discrimination against woman writers threaten to keep her from publishing her novels. Nevertheless, Charlotte succeeds as the result of her persistence, ingenuity, and faith in her talent. Thus, Kyle emphasizes that a strong character is more important than superficial characteristics such as physical appearance or social conformity.
