After a sad and neglected
childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre is hired by Edward Rochester to be a
governess for his ward. Jane is pleased with the quiet country life at
Thornfield Hall, and with all it has to offer: the beautiful old manor house
and gardens, the book-filled library, and her own comfortable room. But there are
stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughs like a maniac and stays in
rooms on the third floor, and whom Jane is discouraged from discussing.
A classic gothic tale and
romantic love story, Jane Eyre remains
one of the most important novels of English literature. Download and start listening now!
