Though it’s been a while since I’ve read Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte’s imaginative writing style came back to me reading this book. It is apparent that the author not only channels the original in style, but also loves nature as the descriptions of wildlife and the changing of the seasons are very detailed and add relevant depth to the protagonist’s personality, who is much like her revered mother.
The very first scene of this novel pulled me in and the suspense continued to build to the very end. I’m very impressed!
Review Note: This is one of my earliest reviews, from 2007-2008. I didn’t write in depth reviews at the time, because I was wary of posting spoilers.
