Author: Charlotte Bronte
‘Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! – I have as much soul as you, – and full as much heart!’
Meek, measured, but determined, Jane Eyre is a child born into unfortunate circumstances. Orphaned, mistreated by her cruel aunt and eventually sent away to boarding school, it is not until she becomes a governess at the imposing Thornfield Hall that Jane begins to find happiness, drawn to Mr. Rochester, the brooding and stormy master.
But strange and unnerving events have been occurring at Thornfield, and the demons of Rochester’s past threaten to shatter everything Jane has grown to hold dear.
Originally published in 1847 under the male pseudonym Currer Bell, Jane Eyre is Charlotte Brontë’s best known novel, a Gothic masterpiece of character and emotion.
