Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, a world-famous rock star on the brink of a huge comeback. Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance.

But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is soon tested by an agonizing secret from his past. Torn between her feelings for Nico and his fateful secret, Jane must decide: Does being true to herself mean giving up on true love?

An irresistible romance interwoven with a darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers.

Review:

Praise for Jane:
"A fascinating, fantastical story line of secrets and star-crossed love...Set against a vivid, well-drawn, contemporary world, this is a compelling adaptation of an ageless romance."
- Booklist

"I couldn't put Jane down! Whether you love literature, romance, thrillers, or anything in between, you'll get swept up in Jane all the way to its scrumptious, satisfying end."
-Sara Shepard, New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars series

"Well-written and faithful to the original, Lindner's story imbues Jane with the requisite innocence, stubbornness, and darkness of Brontë's protagonist...A fresh and addictive adaptation."
-Publishers Weekly

"There's nothing plain about Jane. April Lindner executes the cool trick of being stubbornly loyal to the well-loved original while creating something totally new and captivating."
-Cecily von Ziegesar, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Gossip Girl series

"Jane is a captivating modern love story of a young woman who refuses to compromise her values, and fans of Bronte's Jane Eyre are sure to praise this rousing retelling with its rock 'n' roll twist."
-Associated Press

"Lindner's love story delivers an entrancing star-crossed relationship, and it is not necessary to be familiar with the original to enjoy it."
-School Library Journal

"A sparkling new novel of impossible love, tragic deceit, and a wicked fine guitar solo."
-Anne Osterlund, author of Aurelia

"A remarkable, rocking good love story."
-Justina Chen, author of North of Beautiful
