Orphaned at a young age, Jane Eyre is foisted upon unfriendly relations, sent to school to suffer illness, injustice and privation, before striking out on her own to earn her living as a governess. Independent and passionate by nature, Jane only begins to discover fulfilment when she takes up a post at Thornfield Hall and gets to know the master Mr Rochester, a man of changeable moods. Yet will Thornfield's secrets and Mr Rochester's past prove obstacles to Jane's happiness? With its gothic atmosphere and first-person narrative, Charlotte Bronte's bildungsroman has captivated readers since its first appearance in 1847.
