BE CLASSIC with Jane Eyre, introduced by New York Times bestselling author Gayle Forman.

     As an orphan, Jane has a childhood full of trouble, but her sense of self and stubborn independence help her to steer through the miseries inflicted by cruel relatives and a brutal school. A position as governess at Thornfield Hall promises a kind of freedom. But Thornfield is a house full of secrets, its master a passionate, tomented man. When she falls in love with her sardonic employer, Jane faces her greatest struggle, in a choice between love and self-respect.
Charlotte Brontë lived from 1816 to 1855. Jane Eyre appeared in 1847 and was followed by Shirley (1848) and Vilette (1853). In 1854, Charlotte Brontë married her father's curate, Arthur Bell Nicholls. She died during her pregnancy on March 31, 1855, in Haworth, Yorkshire. The Professor was posthumously published in 1857.
