The stark and beautiful romance of a governess and the master of a house with long-kept secrets.

After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre is hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane is pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room.

But there are stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughs like a maniac, and who stays in rooms on the third floor. The moody Rochester rebuffs her attempts to find discover more, ordering her to keep silent on the matter.

An unlikely relationship blooms between the two, however, and Jane is thrilled to accept Rochester’s proposal of marriage. But the quiet ceremony is shockingly halted by a stranger who claims that Rochester was already married—to the raving maniac Jane had heard crying in the house.

Grief-stricken, Jane flees from Thornfield, feeling that her life is over before it has really begun. Can she ever hope to find a comfortable life again—or even dare to dream of a happily ever after?

I always figured this would be a morose book, but it was surprisingly energetic, wonderfully melodramatic. Usually I won't listen to a non-British narrator doing an accent, but Susan Erickson gave the characters so much genuine emotion she won me over in spite of the slightly off accents.
