Jane Eyre
by Charlotte Brontë

with an introduction by Kerry van der Vinne

“Do you think because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless?”

Jane Eyre’s life has never been an enviable one. Orphaned as a child and passed from cruel relations to an equally harsh charity school, she knows just how hypocritical the world can be. But none of this has crushed her passionate spirit, her independent mind, nor her moral integrity. When she arrives at Thornfield Hall to be governess to the ward of a temperamental eccentric, she begins to make haunting discoveries that will change the course of her life forever.

Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) was the eldest of the famous writing sisters. (Her sister Emily is best remembered for Wuthering Heights, and her sister Anne for The Tenant of Wildfell Hall). She is best remembered for writing Jane Eyre, which she originally published under the pen name ‘Currer Bell.’ Filled with snippets from Brontë’s own experience, this classic Gothic romance continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of readers.
