Poor Jane Eyre has a miserable childhood, but when she gets a job as governess at Thornfield Hall it looks as though she will find happiness at last. But all is not what it seems -- for Thornfield Hall hides a dreadful secret that could upset all her hopes.
Charlotte BrontÃ«'s dramatic tale of love and suffering is vividly and faithfully retold here in graphic novel format.
The highly intelligent but rather plain Jane Eyre is tutor to little Adele at Thornfield Hall, the great mansion owned by Adele's ward, Edward Rochester. Happiness seems to be in store for Jane when she and Rochester fall in love. But one night, Jane hears eerie laughter coming from a far corner of the house, and then there is smoke. Rochester's bed chamber is on fire!
"Reader, I married him."
