B is for BrontÃ«. A novel of intense power and
intrigue, Jane Eyre dazzles and shocks readers with
its passionate depiction of a woman's search for equality
and freedom. Orphaned Jane Eyre grows up in the home of her
heartless aunt, where she endures loneliness and cruelty,
and at a charity school with a harsh regime. This troubled
childhood strengthens Jane's natural independence and
spiritâ€”which proves necessary when she takes a position as
governess at Thornfield Hall. But when she finds love with
her sardonic employer, Rochester, the discovery of his
terrible secret forces her to make a choice. Should she stay
with him and live with the consequences, or follow her
convictions, even if it means leaving the man she loves?
In early nineteenth-century England, an orphaned young woman
accepts employment as a governess at Thornfield Hall, a
country estate owned by the mysteriously remote Mr. Rochester.
