Summary
"A reimagining of Jane Eyre as a gutsy, heroic serial killer, from the author whose work The New York Times described as "riveting" and The Wall Street Journal called "thrilling."--
Summary
Much like classic heroine Jane Eyre, Jane Steele is a poor orphan who suffers at the hands of cruel family members and school administrators -- until she takes matters into her own hands. After several years of evading the law (let's just say that you don't bully this Jane and get away with it), she takes a job as governess in the very house she believes is her own rightful inheritance -- and her curiosity is piqued by the strange habits of the lord of the manor. Set in 19th-century England, this is a darkly humorous novel with a Gothic atmosphere and an unusually violent, intelligent young woman who has every intention to ferret out secrets and gain what's hers. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
