Publisher Comments:

Charlotte Brontë characterized the eponymous heroine of her 1847 novel as being "as poor and plain as myself." Presenting a heroine with neither great beauty nor entrancing charm was an unprecendented maneuver, but Brontë's instincts proved correct, for readers of her era and ever after have taken Jane Eyre into their hearts. The author drew upon her own experience to depict Jane's struggles at Lowood, an oppressive boarding school, and her troubled career as a governess. Unlike Jane, Brontë had the advantage of a warm family circle that shared and encouraged her literary pursuits. She found immediate success with this saga of an orphan girl forced to make her way alone in the world, from Lowood School to Thornfield, the estate of the majestically moody Mr. Rochester, and beyond. Unabridged republication of a standard edition.

Synopsis:

Written in 1847, Jane Eyre tells the tale of an orphan girl's progress from the custody of cruel relatives to an oppressive boarding school and its culmination in a troubled career as a governess. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

This compelling classic, will warm the hearts of all people! A rebellious orphan, is sent to school by her dastardly aunt. She struggles through tragedy, love, loss, and hardships as she tries to find happiness. This Gothic romance by Bronte has enchanted me from the beginning of Jane Eyre's story, until the last page! I recommend this book to readers 11-12 and up.

Jane is an poor orphan who lives with a cruel aunt and cousin. Tired of her spirits and her trying to stick up for her self, her aunt sends her to a strict school for girls. The school is little better, there is not enough food or supplies to take care of the children. Jane spends 8 years there, 6 as a student and 2 as a teacher. However she longs for something more and tries to get a new job as a teacher and caretaker at a wealthy home. Things get complicated when she falls for the gentleman owner.

I really enjoyed this book, Bronte's writing is beautiful and elegant. I really felt the characters, their emotions and feelings were strong and real.
