J is for Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Jane Eyre

Blurb (from Goodreads): Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity. She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman’s passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed.

With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Bronte’s innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers.

  1. I have not read this, and I don’t know why, except I wasn’t a reader when I was younger. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Thanks for the reminder. It sounds good.

  2. To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I’ve read it either but if I did it was quite some time ago. Thanks for dropping by, Melissa.

  3. Not a reader when you were younger, Beverly? I find that hard to believe now that you’re a successful writer. 😉

  4. I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who hasn’t read this book. I was beginning to feel like a weirdo for having not. I keep intending to, but never get around to it. It sounds like an interesting story.

    Have a blessed day!
