Mr. Rochester by Sarah Shoemaker

*** 3.5/5: Liked it to the edge of love- a stage 1 crush

A must-read for any Jane Eyre fan, Mr. Rochester gives us another perspective of the classic novel.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like Jane Eyre
  • If you want a slow and steady historical read

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall


A classic for the ages, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is filled with dark mystery and prideful misunderstandings – leaving us all wondering how so much could be misunderstood. Sarah Shoemaker plays off that wonder – and creates her own story – from Mr. Rochester’s point of view. It’s a slow and steady read, that sets the reader up for that fateful moment when he and Jane cross paths. It’s a must-read for any Jane Eyre fan.
