Description

Charlotte Brontë’s classic gothic novel of love, resilience, and the pursuit of independence—now featuring a stunning cover from acclaimed fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo
 
“At the end we are steeped through and through with the genius, the vehemence, the indignation of Charlotte Brontë.”—Virginia Woolf

Orphaned Jane Eyre endures an unhappy childhood, hated by her aunt and cousins and then sent to comfortless Lowood School. But life there improves and Jane stays on as a teacher, though she still longs for love and friendship. At Mr. Rochester’s house, where she goes to work as a governess, she hopes she might have found them—until she learns the terrible secret of the attic.
