Meet orphan, Jane, whose hardscrabble life has amazingly led her to the steps of the palatial Thornfield Estates and the arms of broodingly handsome Eddie Rochester (who may have his previous wife imprisoned upstairs!).  If this sounds vaguely familiar, don't worry if it's been a while since you read "Jane Eyre."  You can enjoy this clever, fast-paced thriller and review the classic when you're finished.  Then you can truly delight in Rachel Hawkins' witty nod to Charlotte Bronte's masterpiece.
