Jane Eyre endures a harsh childhood as an orphan living first with her cruel aunt and later at a boarding school run by a callous headmaster. After completing school, Jane accepts a governess job taking care of a spirited young girl, and she secretly falls in love with her employer, the dark and brooding Mr. Rochester. But after he proposes, she discovers he has a secret with the power to destroy their relationship—and maybe even his life. Struggle, heartbreak, and redemption all play into this unabridged version of Charlotte Bront?'s classic English novel, taken from the 1897 copyright edition and featuring original illustrations by F. H. Townsend.
