REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
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.
