Review by foomy
This is another book we had to read during the first year of college but it was twenty years later when I reread it again and loved it so much it gave me a different perspective to relationships. I was very single around that time, but this book encouraged me not to give up on men. It is partly an autobiographical novel by Charlotte Bronte who died around the age I read it. Jane, goes through different dramatic life-stages, first she was emotionally abused by her aunt. The climax, of course, would be her reunion with Rochester.
