Becoming Jane Eyre | [Sheila Kohler]

Becoming Jane Eyre

The year is 1846. In a cold parsonage on the gloomy Yorkshire moors, a family seems cursed with disaster. A mother and two children are dead. A father is sick, without fortune, and hardened by the loss of his two most beloved family members. A son is destroyed by alcohol and opiates. And three strong, intelligent young women are reduced to poverty and spinsterhood, with nothing to save them from their fate. Nothing, that is, except their remarkable literary talent.

Publisher's Summary

A beautifully imagined tale of the Bronte sisters and the writing of Jane Eyre. The year is 1846. In a cold parsonage on the gloomy Yorkshire moors, a family seems cursed with disaster. A mother and two children are dead. A father is sick, without fortune, and hardened by the loss of his two most beloved family members. A son is destroyed by alcohol and opiates. And three strong, intelligent young women are reduced to poverty and spinsterhood, with nothing to save them from their fate.

Nothing, that is, except their remarkable literary talent. So unfolds the story of the Bronte sisters. At its center are Charlotte and the writing of Jane Eyre.

Delicately unraveling the connections between one of fiction's most indelible heroines and the remarkable woman who created her, Sheila Kohler's Becoming Jane Eyre will appeal to fans of historical fiction and, of course, the millions of readers who adore Jane Eyre.

    "Gloomy as a cold, rainy day on the moors."

    I loved the book Jane Eyre, love Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, etc. This is the worst thing I've ever heard. When I assumed I'd made it through an hour and a half and checked and it was only 30 minutes, I just couldn't take it anymore.

    Chapter 1 -she's sitting in a room by a window with her father after surgery. Next chapter, going to a school and realizing she "loves language". Chapter 3, sitting in a room by a window with her father. That's as far as I got.

    "Slow - Kindda Boring"

    I guess I should not have expected much in the way of plot or anything real juicy or entertaining. This was just.... ho hum. You gotta have a real low expectation for entertainment with this one. I should have known better.
