Summary: Jane, the heroine, is an orphan, being raised by her cruel Aunt Reed. Tired of her troublesome charge, Mrs. Reed sends Jane to board at Lowood Charity School, where she discovers a new way of life, sometimes as cruel as her time at Gateshead, sometimes full of friendship and laughter. Presently, she accepts the job of Governess to the precocious daughter of Mr. Rochester in Thornfield Hall, and falls in love. She discovers inner strength and self-worth through the redemptive power of that love.

Review: Jane Eyre is a true classic. It's not a quick read, but one that allows you to savour and enjoy the atmosphere and the characters described. I enjoyed the complexity of the characters and the way the plot twists and turns towards the ending.

A delightful book that dares to take things slow, without falling into the trap of being long-winded.
