Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is one of my favorite books.
It was my introduction many years ago into the world of the Bronte sisters and it has been a book that I have gone back to time and time again.
Jane Eyre is an orphan forced to live at Gateshead, the home of her Aunt Reed, where she is treated cruelly and is not shown love by those who could have nurtured and accepted her.
She then is sent to Lowood school where it is even worse.
What I love about Jane is that through all of this she has such a strong voice, such an iron spirit.
Jane soon takes up the post of governess at Thornfield where she meets the mysterious and handsome Mr. Rochester.
Their story is one of love, morality, and choice.
And the ending is perfect.
I will never tire of this novel and it will always have a place as one of my favorites.
