Hello and thank you for popping in to see me at Thriftwood! Interesting to know that Kate Bush was born on the same day as Emily Bronte ... Have a wonderful WednesdayLove Claire xxx
Thank you Claire
Well spotted! How intriguing, do we assume Kate Bush knew of the connection over the birth date or is it just conincidence?:)
According to some internet research I did, Kate did know, but only after reading the book, and before writing the song, it intrigued me too.
Surely has to be more than just a coincidence ... ? I'm sure she would have loved it ;)
You'd like to think so wouldn't you? The young serious Emily, with a strict reverend father must have had a great imagination to come up with WH, so you have to think she would have loved another artists imaginations on her story.
My absolute favourite book of all! I never knew Kate Bush shared her birthday, Have you ever visited Haworth? Such an atmospheric place.
Ellen, I never have... you have given me a great idea for a weekend road trip with my lovely bookish daughter, thank you x
That is an excellent question! Great dinner table debate ~ they were both so young when they began, fresh and uninhibited...must work on that...just putting it down without over thinking...I hope you get to Haworth, Ellen is right, it's a special place, imagine in the Autumn mists...Sarah --x--
that book set me on the road to romantic ruin and that song was the theme tune to my adolescence.......I was Cathy!!!
