When I selected Jane Eyre, I knew I would be revisiting "an old friend" from my teen years. Much to my surprise, not only did I spend a week with a favorite character, the book itself was a gift to Chapman University from a very dear friend of my family! Through a child's eyes I loved Jane for her rebellious spirit and outspokenness. With this read I appreciated Bronte's addressing the inequities of society. It is still at the top of the list of romantic novels with mystery and suspense to keep you turning pages.
