Bronte novella gets its debut

Charles Davis spotted

This BBC Story

a novella written by Charlotte Bronte that has been published for the first time, having been stored in a
museum for years.

The 19th-Century author, who also penned Jane Eyre, wrote Stanliffe’s Hotel in 1838 but the notes were
stored at Yorkshire’s Parsonage Museum, the rectory where the family had lived.

The 34-page short story is described as “racy” and “witty” and was published in full in The Times newspaper
on Friday.
