Jane Eyre

A Retelling

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

After an unhappy childhood and a tough time at school, Jane Eyre is desperate to get away and accepts a job as a governess at Thornfield Hall. But little does she know what awaits her there, from the hollow laughter she hears in the corridors to the house's enigmatic owner Mr Rochester...

Tanya Landman brilliantly captures what makes Jane Eyre such a classic novel in this smart, accessible retelling. Perfectly pitched and clearly written, her take retains all the beloved gothic intrigue and dark romance of the book but helps to bring them to a new audience.

Printed on off-white paper with dyslexia-friendly font, this version of Jane Eyre is perfect for young people who might struggle with reading - and the fantastic story featuring a steely, powerful heroine is sure to have them gripped.

Fans of Charlotte Brontë's original novel will also enjoy the retelling, which has clearly been lovingly and carefully crafted by Landman.

A fantastic way to introduce a classic story to a new generation.
