Classic tale of a woman's coming of age, in a time when women didn't have the options they have now. Jane is strong in her sense of her own worth and personal integrity, in contrast with others in her life who either want to use her for their own purposes or disregard her entirely.

Contrary to some reviews I've seen, I never found the language at all difficult; there may be terms for objects that have fallen out of use, but it's always clear what's going on. And we do have google :)

A classic, a heroine for any age. Done in prose which is graceful, nuanced and yet clear cut. Couldn't recommend it any more highly.
