In its exploration of legal issues presented in novels of the Brontë sisters, this book represents a significant and original contribution to the study, not just of the Brontës and the mid-nineteenth century ''woman''s novel'', but also the situation of women in nineteenth century English law and the debates which moved around its prospective reform.
