Charlotte and Emily must enter a fantasy world that they invented in order to rescue their siblings in this adventurous and fiercely intelligent novel. Inside a small Yorkshire parsonage, Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne Bront? have invented a game called Glass Town, where their toy soldiers fight Napoleon and no one dies. This make-believe land helps the four escape from a harsh reality: Charlotte and Emily are being sent away to a dangerous boarding school, a school they might not return from. But on this Beastliest Day, the day Anne and Branwell walk their sisters to the train station, something incredible happens: the train whisks them all away to a real Glass Town, and the children trade the moors for a wonderland all their own.

This book was an absolute delight to read! It was immensely imaginative and descriptive. There is a sense of childhood wonder despite the difficult issue of grief and loss. The fictionalized adventures of Bronte children are a fun read for children and those who are young at heart.
