It is the pages of her diary where Charlotte exposes her deepest feelings and desires--and the truth about her life, its triumps and shattering disappointments, her family, the inpiration behind her work, her scandalous secret passion for the man she can never have--and her intense dramatic relationship with the man she comes to love, the enigmatic Arthur Bell Nicholls.--From publisher's description.
