Title: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Genre: Fiction – Literary
Year of Publication: 1847
Approximate Page Count: 328 pages
Summary: Jane Eyre is the story of a small, plain-faced, intelligent, and passionate English orphan. Jane is abused by her aunt and cousin and then attends a harsh charity school. Through it all, she remains strong and determinedly refuses to allow a cruel world to crush her independence or her strength of will. A masterful story of a woman's quest for freedom and love. Jane Eyre is partly autobiographical, and Charlotte Brontë filled it with social criticism and sinister Gothic elements. This is a must-read for anyone wishing to celebrate the indomitable strength of will or encourage it in their growing children.
