Jane Eyre

by Charlotte Brontė

A wonderful classic. The story beings with orphan, Jane, being raised by an Aunt (by marriage) who has taken on her raising due to a promise to her deceased husband. However, the aunt, nor the cousins ever accept Anne as one of theirs. Anne is shipped off to a religious girl\'s school, where she is half-starved, and taught religious extremes. However, one teacher takes her under her wing, and Jane thrives, to even later become a teacher at the school herself. Jane eventually leaves the school to become a governess, and the rest of the story, is the romance that grows between her, and her master, Mr. Rochester. There are some parts of the book, especially as Jane grows older, that get lengthy, and difficult to read. However, the story line is wonderful, and the twists and turns keep you on the edge of your seat. A great classic book - a must read.
