Orphaned Jane is sent to work as a governess for brooding Mr. Rochester’s daughter, Adele. Love begins to grow between Jane and her moody employer, but his mysterious first wife threatens to ruin their chance at happiness.
Jane Eyre is one of the most loved English Classics of all time! Mystery, hardship–and love. Jane comes from nothing but she desires everything life can offer her.

But Thornfield Hall contains a shameful secret–one that could keep Jane and Rochester apart forever. Can she choose between what is right, and her one chance of happiness?
