Publisher's Summary

The stark and beautiful romance of a governess and the master of a house with long-kept secrets.
After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre is hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane is pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room.
But there are stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughs like a maniac and who stays in rooms on the third floor. The moody Rochester rebuffs her attempts to discover more, ordering her to keep silent on the matter.
An unlikely relationship blooms between the two, however, and Jane is thrilled to accept Rochester's proposal of marriage. But the quiet ceremony is shockingly halted by a stranger who claims that Rochester was already married--to the raving maniac Jane had heard crying in the house.
Grief stricken, Jane flees from Thornfield, feeling that her life is over before it has really begun. Can she ever hope to find a comfortable life again--or even dare to dream of a happily ever after?

Enticing and captivating from the beginning to the end!

Jane eyre has always been one of my all time favorites, i had seen the movie and now have also finished reading the book (which was ten times better!) I'm the type of person that may start a book and never finish it but I'm very happy that i stuck with it because it was truly a journey full of exciting plot twists from start to finish.

As of the quality of the audio book, it was very clear, punctuated, and lively. A very good reading.

Would I recommend this? Yes i would. It is hard to find people in this day and age that appreciate classical novels like Jane eyre but it at depends on your preferred reading material. But all in all, i found myself living through these characters, feeling what they feel, seeing what they see, and immersing myself in the plot.
A great book!

Incredible classic

What did you love best about Jane Eyre?

Unlike many classics whose language is difficult to understand and not relatable, this classic remains timeless. From a difficult childhood, challenging work experience and romance Jane survives and thrives.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Jane Eyre?

Her confrontations: with her aunt, the headmistress and Rochester.


Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all the JD Robb books. It is not possible to do a comparison as Ms. Ericksen has the ability to present many accents, male and female. She is my favorite audio book performer.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I also enjoy savoring a great novel and performance.
