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.
