Jane Eyre (Word Cloud Classics) (Paperback)
When February rolls around and love is in the air, there are no star-crossed lovers I’d rather return to than plain Jane Eyre and broody Mr. Rochester.
This classic clicked with me instantly when I first read it - forgettable Jane Eyre, friendless and without family yet determined to forge her own path in life, takes up a governess position for Mr. Rochester’s young ward at his grand estate in the English countryside. Rumors abound about the reclusive Mr. Rochester (most of which Ms. Eyre is too sensible to believe). When the two finally meet, they recognize a part of themselves in each other - each grievously betrayed by their families, loners who find little use for the trappings of society but find themselves bound by convention nonetheless.
Jane Eyre is the standard against which I now hold every love story I read. If you’ve never picked up this classic, this is your sign to put it on your TBR list!
No home library is complete without the classics! Jane Eyre is a keepsake to be read and treasured.
When Jane Eyre was first published in 1847, it became an instant bestseller, so popular that the publisher commissioned a second printing in just three months. The story of a young girl--plain, poor, and alone--who endures abuse, abandonment, and ridicule only to become a loving, compassionate young woman of great moral character remains Charlotte Brontë’s greatest achievement. Now available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series, Jane Eyre is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers.
