Great for age 9-18 years
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.'Plain' orphan Jane Eyre is not expected to amount to much. A pleasant existence as a governess is all she is supposed to hope for - but Jane desperately wants more. And an appointment at the gothic mansion of Thornfield offers her more than she could ever dream of - including a chance at real love. But when tragedy strikes, she will have to use all her bravery, spirit and resolve to overcome her supposed fate, and forge her own destiny. This classic novel challenges conventions of desire, family, class and just how much of our identity we are willing to give up for those we love.

Charlotte Bronte (21 April 1816 - 31 March 1855) was the eldest of the adult Bronte sisters and is best known for her work, "Jane Eyre".

This book contains the following story:

Jane Eyre
Orphaned at an early age, Jane Eyre leads a lonely life until she finds work as a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she meets the mysterious Mr. Rochester and sees a ghostly woman who roams the halls by night. The relationship between the heroine and Mr. Rochester is only one episode, albeit the most important, in a detailed fictional autobiography in which the author transmuted her own experience into high art. In this work, the plucky heroine is outwardly of plain appearance but possesses an indomitable spirit, a sharp wit, and great courage. She is forced to battle against the exigencies of a cruel guardian, a harsh employer, and the rigid social order that circumscribes her life and position. This classic story shows how a young woman can overcome adversity and find true happiness. It is a story of passionate love, travail, and final triumph.
