    I love the Brontes and the idea of bringing them to life is what made me want to read The Mist on Bronte Moor That and a love interest with none other than Branwell Bronte known for being the family rebel It's an exciting and new twist on historical fiction that I can't wait to get my hands on

    Powerfully moving and evocative the breathtaking complexity of the delicately interwoven narrative is simply stunning Spinechilling and magnificent this impressive novel entwines accurate historical detail with a thoroughly contemporary twist in an original work of ambitious proportions I was delighted to find the Brontë’s re captured in a classy current way that reaches out to those who enjoy the young adult genre Aviva Orr’s inspired vision and how she delicately merges together both fact and fiction is beautiful making this novel not only something that oozes period romance and sophistication but which makes the past very important within our present It is works such as Wuthering Heights and the star crossed lovers of Cathy and Heathcliffe that formed the very foundations for female authors to express themselves through the page and it is Mr Rochester’s well guarded secret within Thornfield that stirs our imaginations for the gothic and romanticism Alongside Austen and Dickens the Brontë’s novels are greatly conseuential within my life for they sparked that love and appreciation for literary enlightenment and the power of the written word – highlighting the tragedy and horror within life Heavy hangs the raindrop From the burdened spray;Heavy broods the damp mistOn uplands far away; E J BrontëAn intriguing take and perspective on the Brontë family is taken through the eyes of a modern day teenager who unexpectedly falls through the mist and into their lives in the nineteenth century Heather Jane Bell is a brilliant protagonist for our acute insight into this famous family is seen with a modern outlook – which I found to be most refreshing You are thus able to put yourself into Heather’s shoes and discover Emily Charlotte Anne and Branwell as if you are actually standing before them; hence I would recommend this to long term devotees of the Brontë novels too The harshness of the times is vividly brought to life through the pen as too is the bleakness of the Moors the death and also the inspiration that the sisters drew for their stories; such as the environment and those characteristics of whom surrounded them Love is unexpected breathtaking and unsettling for as readily as we gain it we can also loose it as described through Heather and Branwell’s intensely impassioned connection One learns so much about each Brontë and their individualistic traits as the author projects this clearly through their relationship with the fictitious character and how they act react in situations that arise As fluid and delicate as poetry Aviva Orr’s writing is stunning with sublime simplicity of prose together with Emily Brontë’s poetry as to make the words strike a deeply profound chord within Compelling and atmospheric one gains a realistic vision of the sights smells and sounds of the era perfectly in this well researched book Love is like the wild Rose BriarFriendship is like the Holly TreeThe Holly is dark when the Rose Briar bloomsBut which will bloom most constantly? E J BrontëWhat makes this novel stand out is the disease called ‘alopecia’ which causes Heather’s hair to fall out ref to Jane Eyre in which a young girl called Helen Burns has her hair chopped short due to vanity Mr Brocklehurst aims to teach her humility Whilst the main character is taken on a journey of inner self discovery she learns the importance of inner beauty taking both courage and strength from those strong persons whom she is with including Mary Many references are made to those works of the Brontë’s but one in particular I felt was remicent of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes the hound of the Baskerville’s in which a savage wolf haunts the Moors This magical remarkable and astonishingly brilliant book is dazzling and so I praise it as an impressive debut that is a MUST READ I was sent an e copy of “The Mist on Brontë Moor” by Aviva Orr to read and review from the author herself

    I'm a big fan of Emily Bronte's writing her words simply leave me speechless And now I'm a fan of Aviva Orr She's inherited that beautiful romantic yet tragic writing style that the Bronte sisters have given us The Mist on Bronte Moor is unforgettable The story is beautiful the writing is magnificent the characters were so incredibly realistic that I felt like I really knew them I have nothing to complain about Aviva Orr has accomplished exactly what Emily Bronte did and what many other authors couldn't she left me utterly speechless Heather starts out as a very insecure character She's sensitive to her flaws but that completely changes once she meets Emily and Branwell I like her because she's a tough character like Catherine in Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights She's got one of those sharp stubborn personalities that attracts the reader's attention no matter whatBranwell on the other hand is a very troubled guy His flaws go from drugs to brawls to depression And yet even though I repeatedly told myself I wouldn't like him I ended up loving him No matter how conceited and disturbed he was he had these rare moments where he became this lovable sweet guyThe relationship between Heather and Branwell s i z z l e s There's no love at first sight actually Branwell thinks Heather is a boy when he first meets her and there aren't any overly gushy moments They spend only a couple of moments together before everything falls to apartThe story in general is a refreshing take on the lives of the Bronte family with a small twist of course It's a beautiful novel that I'll probably be rereading again very soon There're very few cliches in it and the amount of predictability is close to none Overall I love it I love the eerie tone the shocking truths about the family the character's flaws and the characters themselves It's a story you can't missThis is a MUST READ for fans of the Bronte sisters I highly recommend it

    I love the Brontës I find their short insulated lives fascinating especially given their writing genius So when I read the synopsis for this book I was very keen to read this YA take on a day or days rather in the lives of the Brontë family Heather has a great character arc her insecurities due to her alopecia makes it difficult for her to open up to her family and friends but with the Brontë sisters and Branwell she can gradually forget her fears The infatuated love she feels for Branwell who true to the real man is charming and troubled at turns was well captured by the author's prose I felt she brought teenage love and angst to life in this story even creating a Victorian euivalent that slightly mirrors elements of Wuthering Heights This added a welcome element of danger and suspense to what is a simple time travel romance and coming of age storyWhat I most appreciated about this story was the faithful re imagining of the teenage Brontës and their lives in Haworth The author obviously did much research and used real life facts to support her characterizations and drama I felt like I was really seeing into their minds and I loved how well the author brought them to life The historical details makes this an excellent immersive read that made me feel the cold and beauty of the moors in the nineteenth century and the uniue relationships between the Brontë family This is a relatively short sweet novel about acceptance and love with the bonus of including such dynamic personalities as the Brontës I would highly recommend it to readers who like character driven stories with historical fantasy elements and light romance

    Early review on reuest from the author also on must say that this book blew me away I loved the sound from this book and the story totally delivered to my expectationsHeather Jane Bell is fifteen years and suffers from Alopecia This means that her hair will fall out because her immune system attacks the hair follicles She has been friends with Simon for 10 years now He is a popular typical pretty boy and she is bullied because nobody understands her friendship; she is too ‘normal’ for him An awkward kiss ends their friendship and Simon ignores her Heather is devastated and when she loses clumps of hair on school she doesn’t want to attend school anyHer parents send her to a great aunt called Elspeth in West Yorkshire When Heather takes a walk she is surrounded by a mist and swept away back in time She ends up with Emily Jane Brontë and her family; father Charlotte Anne Branwell his real name is actually Patrick Tabby the maid and aunt Branwell Heather doesn’t know it yet and she suspects that she just lost her way during the walk She can live with them until father Brontë finds her auntTimes passes and Heather finds her way in the family She is now aware that the mist transported her back in time but she is far too busy to think about her real home all the time; she and Branwell are growing to like each other He is a very troubled boy but he makes her feel beautiful Will she ever return to her home? And does she want that?I liked Heather’s voice I could understand her feelings; I would be broken if I lose my long hair I was happy that she wasn’t whiny about it and she starts to realize that she can be beautiful despite her sickness It wasn’t hard to connect with herAviva used another storyline to spice up the story and I liked that It made sure that I was hooked to the pages and I was never bored It was hard to put it down and her writing style was pleasant The fact that every chapter starts with a piece of Emily’s writing was great Very nice addition to the Brontë feeling The world building is good I could imagine all the places Heather visits and the secondary characters are well doneSo I would definitely recommend this book if you like time travel

    45 starsAmazing Beautiful Bittersweet These are the words that sum up how I would describe this book First let's talk about Heather Her struggle with alopecia is apparent from the first page and it is very well written Some reviewers claim that she didn't struggle with it as much as she should have while staying with the Brontës but I say nay nay The girl was in 1833; she had other things on her mind and it is still a fairly big struggle in the story so I don't agree with them The one thing that I feel is invonsistent as far as the alopecia goes is the cover In the book she has to cut it off but on thecover she is pictured in the graveyard with long flowing hair That's it And I didn't care about that at all so in my opinion it was flawless I thought it was a bit strange that she didn't realize she had traveled back in time sooner because even though it seems far fetched there were so many obvious signs Other than that I thought she was a great main character The love story was a bit of a love hate relationship for me and probably the only reason this book isn't getting five stars In the 1800s I am almost certain it was not common to snuggle by the fireplace Especially after you have only known the person for two weeks Once I got over that little fact I was soon in love with Branwell He was so charming yet he had a vulnerable side to him as well I did not know the Brontës had a brother and I looked him up while reading this because I was so interested He seems like he was very talented but for reasons that I won't tell you because they might spoil the book he never became as famousAs some of you may already know I have a Brontë obsession Currently I'm trying to read every single book they ever wrote So now I will go on a rant on how I think it is completely AWESOME that Charlotte Emily and Anne kind of were all main characters I know this book is fictional but I feel as if I got to know them by reading this Silly right? Still; I will never look at Jane Eyre the same way again Now the ending Don't worry; there's no spoilers here but I feel like I need to say that the ending was a rollercoaster of emotions for me I don't know how to say it any differently It was not an ending that completely killed my happiness and made me want to curl up into a ball and sobMockingjay but it was not a happy sunshine and rainbows and they all lived happily ever after ending I loved itI know that if I don't end this soon I will ramble on and on so I'll close with this; The Mist on Brontë Moor is one of the best books I have read this year It's the kind of book where you become overly attached to the characters and feel sad when it's over I have no idea if there could be a seuel to this but if there is I would buy it in a second You need to read itThis review can be found on

    I've had this book on my Kindle for ages always planning to read it but never got around to it Well shame on meThe Mist on Bronte Moor by Aviva Orr was a charming story that transported me into a different world A world that I find inherently fascinating The writing was imaginative and poetic yet very approachable From the scenery to the characters to the incredibly creative plot I really adored this book Heather suffers from alopecia losing her beautiful hair by the handful Heart broken embarrassed and hurting she flees London to live with her great auntOnce there she gets lost on the moors and ends up in the a century long gone with the Bronte family Yes that Bronte family For a big city girl used to modern conveniences this is uite a shock Especially not knowing if she'll ever find her way back Considering her situation she's taking it surprisingly well uickly adjusting to this lifestyle and finding her place in the Bronte family She's found a good friend in Emily But that's not what keeps her preoccupiedIt's her budding feelings for Branwell the Bronte brother Between experiencing her first love and trying to help two hopeless lovers reunite she's uite busy and doesn't get much chance to miss her life in the futureHeather is a typical teenager but her illness forces her to grow up a bit uicker She has to leave behind the typical teenager shallowness and vanity and find what truly defines her outside of her looks Insecure and self conscious it takes her time to redefine her definition of beauty I suppose it's harder to focus on how you look when you're dealing with no electricity no running water no heating the things she's always taken for granted Hair loss suddenly isn't a priority any Her time with the Brontes lets her grow up immensely allowing her to come out a self confident person who knows what she wants She's down to earth sweet and loyal Willing to risk her own safety she goes out of her way to help others I loved all the characters But especially Branwell Her made the teenage girl in me swoon something fierce Intelligent nerdy yet with a wild side I'm not surprised Heather falls for him Aviva Orr has done a perfect job to capture the voice of the Bronte sisters painting a beautiful picture of their lives Facts mixing with fantasy I was allowed to spend some time on Bronte Moor and it was amazing The only thing that spoiled it for me was the ending It felt uite rushed and I am missing some closure 4 the Bronte sisters rock stars

    35 hearts I found this as a giveaway on Goodreads and absolutely loved the premise I entered the contest and while I didn't win I got an email from the author Aviva WOOT asking if I'd like to read for review Obviously I said yes because this novel already piued my interestWho doesn't love the Brontës especially Emily The story of the Brontës is fascinating given the amount of literary talent in the family as well as the short lived lives of the children and mother The Mist on Brontë Moor is a brilliant depiction on the young lives of Emily Charlotte Anne and Branwell along with Heather Bell Aviva Orr did an stunning job weaving fiction and non fiction together Heather has insecurities due to her AlopeciaThe loss of hair which usually turns out in permanent baldness Having this disease while being in high school is just not fun Heather ends up leaving her high school after an incident in class and going to live with her Aunt in the Yorkshire Country The day after she arrives she travels into the Moors outside There is a mist that invades her visibility and she trips and hits her head falling into the 19th century Heather wakes up in the Moors While trying to find her way back to her new home she meets Emily Emily decides to take Heather back to her home where she meets the rest of the Brontë family Heather finds a love interest in Branwell who is charming and troubled true to the real man Aviva did a amazing job entangling the teenage characters to make them true to the actual history while being fictionalized The Mist on Brontë Moor is definitely delivers worthy read Mixing time travel romance history and suspense Getting a new take on the Brontë family is refreshing and uniue Although a work of fiction this story makes you really imagine what it was like for the Brontë family in the 19th century This novel brings you on a vivid journey to a historical past I felt as if I was thrown back in time along with Heather feeling everything that she went through with Emily and Branwell especially This is truly a brilliant work of art by Aviva Orr I can't wait to see what she puts out next

    25 starsA uick light read As a huge fan of the Bronte sisters the blurb was what really drew me to this book But I have to admit I am rather disappointed with this story The MC Heather suffers from alopecia and is recovering from a broken heart She is sent to live with her Aunt in Yorkshire The story started off well enough and I loved how the element of time travel was mixed with the historical aspects of the Bronte family I loved reading about their lives However I felt the MC was completely unrelatable For a girl who is coping with an illness I felt that the issue was just brushed under the rug the minute she landed in the nineteenth century I wanted to know and feel what she was going through but I didn't get that Instead she falls in love with Branwell Bronte who I felt had NO chemistry with her It was all insta love There were no swoon worthy moments instead it just feel flat There was a sub plot as well which was rather interesting but the ending which was poorly executed left many things unresolved in the story and felt me utterly dissatisfiedI really wanted to love this book It is good for a one time read You get an idea of what the Brontes would have been like but other than that there's nothing much to say I don't think die hard fans of the Bronte classics would enjoy this book Maybe it's okay for young readers who are looking to be introduced to them

    I love historical fiction but when it involves time travel the transition between time has to convince me or I won't buy the premise Of course I know it's fiction still In The Mist on the Bronte Moor Heather the main character flows smoothly into the past First baffled by her surroundings she comes up with logically reasons to explain the differences in time periods away She soon comes to understand that time has ticked backward somehow I can barely remember what I learned about the Brontes in high school so it was fun getting to know the family along with Heather who at first knows little about them herself This was a fun read with believable characters brought to life by the story's rich attention to details It feels incredibly authenticity as though one really has stepped through the pages and back in timeA must read for historical fiction and fantasy fans
