Adele, the daughter of a celebrated Parisian actress, is a homesick, forlorn eight-year-old when first brought to Thornfield Hall by Edward Fairfax Rochester, her mother's former lover. Lonely and ill at ease in the unfamiliar English countryside, she longs to return to the glitter of Paris . . . and to the mother who has been lost to her.
But a small ray of sunshine brightens her eternal gloom when a stranger arrives to care for her--a serious yet intensely loving young governess named Jane Eyre--even as young Adele's curiosity leads her deeper into the shadowy manor, toward the dark and terrible secret that is locked away in a high garret. . . .
Includes fascinating in-depth background material about Charlotte Bronte and the Jane Eyre legacy

Emma Tennant retells Jane Eyre from the perspective of Rochester's illegitimate daughter Adele. If Adele is to be believed as narrator, Jane Eyre was not the gracious soul she made herself seem and Rochester's family is an even greater nest of duplicity and madness than Bronte herself made it out to be.Review:
"Tennant's story works perfectly, creating a genuine modern sequel to Bronte's tale."--Kirkus Reviews
