The reimagining of Jane Eyre as a gutsy, heroic serial killer that The New York Times Book Review calls wonderfully entertaining and USA Today describes as sheer mayhem meets Victorian propriety. A thrill ride of a novel. A must read for lovers ofJane Eyre, dark humor, and mystery. PopSugar.com Reader, I murdered him. A sensitive orphan, Jane Steele suffers first at the hands of her spiteful aunt and predatory cousin, then at a grim school where she fights for her very life until escaping to London, leaving the corpses of her tormentors behind her. After years of hiding from the law while penning macabre last confessions of the recently hanged, Jane thrills at discovering an advertisement. Her aunt has died and her childhood home has a new master: Mr. Charles Thornfield, who seeks a governess. Burning to know whether she is in fact the rightful heir, Jane takes the position incognito and learns that Highgate House is full of marvelously strange new residents the fascinating but caustic Mr. Thornfield, an army doctor returned from the Sikh Wars, and the gracious Sikh butler Mr. Sardar Singh, whose history with Mr. Thornfield appears far deeper and darker than they pretend. As Jane catches ominous glimpses of the pair s violent history and falls in love with the gruffly tragic Mr. Thornfield, she faces a terrible dilemma: Can she possess him body, soul, and secrets without revealing her own murderous past? A satirical romance about identity, guilt, goodness, and the nature of lies, by a writer who Matthew Pearl calls superstar-caliber and whose previous works Gillian Flynn declared spectacular, Jane Steele is a brilliant and deeply absorbing book inspired by Charlotte Bronte s classic Jane Eyre.
