I REALLY enjoyed this book. I accidentally read #4 and 5 in this series and had to come back to the beginning. I think this author is excellent and the storyline is very gripping as it has to do with Al Qaeda and September 11 and the war in Afghanistan. It's like a window into the middle east and what it is like for the soldiers that were over there.

This story is a one of a kind tale of one of the strongest woman characters I have yet encountered. The story is just so gripping as young Jane goes from unwanted orphan to the mundane and humble life in Lowood charity school for girls knowing nothing of life outside of the school walls. She finds a position as governess for a young girl and decides to take the leap away from her security and all she's ever known.
The Master of the house, Mr. Rochester, gets a hold of her heart and eventually they are to be married. But there is a problem. Jane must choose between the laws of man and the laws of her God and consience. She faces hardship and starvation as she leaves her love to follow what she knows in her heart to be right. The decisions she is faced with are profound and difficult, almost uncomprehendible in today's society. She faces them all and lives with a clear consience. A good story through and through, one I will be reading over and over.

I read this book as an adult because my daughter said it was her favorite, she couldn't say why, it just was. She has read a lot of books so that meant something to me. I decided to pick it up and couldn't put it down. It was such a beautiful story of fantasy and wonder with science and spirituality woven in. I will re-read it and suggest it always. As an added bonus, I discovered it is first in a six book series! I love that and read them all immediatly.
