Learned by Heart

Learned by Heart is a scorcher of a clandestine love story between two girls who fall deeply and dangerously in love with each other at a boarding school in York in the 19th Century. Emma Donoghue, who wrote the wildly popular book Room has never shied away from the ugly parts of life, and it's no different in this book as you watch the inevitable train wreck that was inspired by the true story of Anne Lister and her five-million-word secret journal. Buckle up for this one.
