(FULL Audio Book)
Jane Eyre is a masterpiece of romance and hardship, penned by beloved author Charlotte Bront?. From a childhood spent as a dependent relation amongst cruel relatives and then as a student at a spirit-crushing charity school, Jane grows to become a remarkable woman: poor and plain in an era that viewed women as little more than ornaments, she believes in her own worth and craves independence and adventure. She becomes governess to a little girl at Thornfield Hall and falls in love with the brooding, Byronic master, Mr. Rochester: a man who hides a terrible secret in Thornfield’s attic. A favorite of readers everywhere since its publication in 1847, Bront?’s novel is one of the most enduring classics of all time. (Summary by Elizabeth Barr)
