Summary:
In her classic tale, Charlotte Brontë introduced readers to the strong-willed and intelligent Jane Eyre. Picking up where Brontë left off, Jane{u2019}s life has settled into a comfortable pattern: She and her beloved Edward Rochester are married and have an infant son. But Jane soon finds herself in the midst of new challenges and threats to those she loves{u2026} Jane can{u2019}t help but fret when a letter arrives from Adèle Varens{u2014}Rochester{u2019}s ward, currently at boarding school{u2014}warning that the girl{u2019}s life is in jeopardy. Although it means leaving her young son and invalid husband, and despite never having been to a city of any size, Jane feels strongly compelled to go to London to ensure Adèle{u2019}s safety. But almost from the beginning, Jane{u2019}s travels don{u2019}t go as planned{u2014}she is knocked about and robbed, and no one believes that the plain, unassuming Jane could indeed be the wife of a gentleman; even the school superintendent takes her for an errant new teacher. But most shocking to Jane is the discovery that Adèle{u2019}s schoolmate has recently passed away under very suspicious circumstances, yet no one appears overly concerned. Taking advantage of the situation, Jane decides to pose as the missing instructor{u2014}and soon uncovers several unsavory secrets, which may very well make her the killer{u2019}s next target{u2026}
