Edward Rochester is troubled, cynical, moody--but funny, brilliant, giving, and sensitive; little Adele is a delight; Thornfield has all the beauty Jane could ever want. Life should be perfect...
But Jane Eyre and her decades-older employer are falling desperately in love--
And Thornfield holds a living horror that can, with no warning, destroy Edward, Jane, Adele..A murderous secret ready to devour Jane Eyre's dreams, hopes--even her life.
This Tor Classic is packaged with exciting, colorful cover art. Penniless and orphaned, Jane must make her way in a world where single women have few choices. She becomes governess at Thornfield, but the dark and brooding Mr. Rochester has a secret that threatens to destroy them both.
