After being subjected to cruelty in her foster home and at boarding school, young Jane becomes a governess in the home of the mysterious, sardonic and attractive Mr. Rochester – who harbors a terrible secret.
The epic love story of the plain, unloved orphan with an indomitable spirit who becomes “a free woman of independent will” still resonates with millions of fans all over the world. In this long-awaited recording, award-winning narrator Alison Larkin brings Charlotte Brontë’s famous story to authentic new life, drawing on her own adoption experience. As Larkin says, “narrating the story of Jane Eyre resonated for me on every level; an unwanted child forging her own path to adulthood needed as much bravery in 1847 as she does today.”
Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) was an English novelist and poet who published Jane Eyre under the nom-de-plume of Currer Bell.
