Rivetingly retold for today's readers, Charlotte Brontë's
classic story of thwarted love and dark secrets remains as fresh
and exciting as the day it was first written. Jane Eyre is a poor
orphan who has no one to protect her from bullying relations and
school masters. Determined to change her luck, she becomes a
governess and settles happily into a new life at Thornfield Hall.
Before long, Jane realizes Thornfield and its owner, Mr. Rochester,
are hiding secrets from her. Whose menacing laugh does she keep
hearing? How did the fire start that almost cost Mr. Rochester his
life? And why are there screams in the night?
