Why this book?
Jane Eyre is the story of a young, disadvantaged woman who is trying to survive in a cold, bleak world. She takes a job as a governess and goes to live amongst strangers. Giftedly clever, she is able to blend in when she needs to and shine when she is allowed to. I love this book because the heroine is so relatable – she has so much to offer people who see the good in others and delights us with her wit and charm when villains set their sights on her. Her ultimate victory in life is one we can all celebrate with her.
