Jane is an poor orphan who lives with a cruel aunt and cousin.
Tired of her spirits and her trying to stick up for her self, her
aunt sends her to a strict school for girls. The school is little
better, there is not enough food or supplies to take care of the
children. Jane spends 8 years there, 6 as a student and 2 as a
teacher. However she longs for something more and tries to get
a new job as a teacher and caretaker at a wealthy home. Things
get complicated when she falls for the gentleman owner.
I really enjoyed this book, Bronte's writing is beautiful and
elegant. I really felt the characters, their emotions and feelings
were strong and real.
