Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre is the story of a young orphaned woman with a free spirit that makes her an alien in her aunt’s household. Later she becomes a governess and is drawn towards the master of the house, eventually agreeing to marry him. However, what follows are the trials and tribulations of a woman on her own in a predominantly man’s world. The book embodies a powerful statement of women’s claim to independence.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep... -Robert Frost
