Jane Eyre

A Retelling

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

When Jane applies to be a governess at Thornfield Hall, she’s hoping for a new life away from her cruel aunt and the traumas of boarding school – and perhaps have a little adventure. But little does she know what awaits her there: Thornfield Hall is a house full of secrets with a troubled and haunted man as its master.

There’s a mystery here, from the hollow laughter she hears on the third floor to fires being set in the middle of the night and the house's enigmatic owner Mr Rochester. It’s a mystery that will change Jane’s life forever, but perhaps not in quite the way she had been imagining or hoping for…

This is a well-crafted, shortened retelling of the famous tale in an accessible, dyslexia-friendly format (using off-white paper and a special font). Tanya Landman brilliantly captures what makes Jane Eyre such a classic novel: perfectly pitched and clearly written, her take retains all the beloved gothic intrigue and dark romance of the original.

A great way to introduce a classic story to a new generation – especially one that features such a steely, powerful heroine as Jane.
