A Curious Beginning

Anne’s thoughts

ane Eyre lovers, you can relax: while Faye—and her heroine, Jane Steele—draw serious inspiration from Jane Eyre, It draws serious inspiration from Brontë’s classic, it’s not a retelling. Instead, it’s delightfully meta: our titular narrator tells us the inspiration to write down her story came from “the most riveting book titled Jane Eyre.” This Jane is a wise-cracking, whipsmart, unconventional young woman who rebels against Victorian convention, but she has a heart of gold. Jane makes a perfect pairing with Veronica and Deanna Raybourn’s petticoat and parasol brigade.
