Hannah-16 , August 3, 2012

This haunting, realistic tale of an orphan named Jane Eyre will touch your heart! You read this book looking through the eyes of Jane Eyre who endures through tragedy, loss, love, and loneliness.
Jane , at the beginning of the story is thrown into a oppressive boarding school called Lowood, by her wicked aunt. Then after schooling she sets out on the hard life of being a governess. As Jane makes her way, alone in the world, from Lowood, to Rochester Manor, the estate of the moody Mr. Rochester, and on from there.

I loved this classic by Charlotte Bronte, it was inspiring seeing a lone woman set out into the world on her own, make her own living ,have her own house, and fall in love, too!
