Originally published in 1847, Jane Eyre is Charlotte Bronte’s passionate love story between impoverished Jane and her employer, the rich yet conflicted Edward Rochester.

From the beginning of her life Jane Eyre wishes for more, taking it upon herself to rise above her circumstances to become educated and secure employment as a governess to Mlle. Adele. She falls deeply in love with Edward Rochester unaware that he, and the Thornfield estate, hold secrets that threaten her happiness.
Taking its characters to the brink of heartbreak and back, Jane Eyre is a romance for the ages. A literary classic, the epic love story between Jane and Mr. Rochester continues to resonate and inspire readers more than a century after its original publication.
