I do believe this book has sky rocketed to the top of my favourite books of all time list. I loved the characters of Jane and Mr. Rochester. Reading how one who has such a heart comes through such a hard life to go forward in living her life was spell bounding. Taking from the hardships she experienced in her life, she used those methods to bring more life into situations in the future. Although she claimed to have had no interest in finding love, she had at one time loved and lost Helen. Finding within herself the realization she had more to give in life she embarked on a whole new journey into the unknown to experience more than she thought she deserved. She moved forward encouraging the waif Adele into seizing her own education, growing to love her. This book is a journey i would gladly go through again and again, the love found herein is one of the most realistic love stories I have ever read.
