With her 1847 novel, Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bront? created one of the most unforgettable heroines of all time. Jane Eyre is an orphan, penniless and plain, but full of courage and spirit. She has endured incredible hardship to secure her humble status as a governess in the household of her brooding employer, Mr. Rochester. Jane’s sharp wit and defiant nature meet with Mr. Rochester’s sardonic temperament. The two become enmeshed in a deep, intense bond. But Mr. Rochester has a terrible secret—a remnant from his past that could threaten any hope of happiness with his only love.
