Sloane HallSloane Hall by Libby Sternberg can be categorised under different labels: a historical romance, women's fiction or a reworking of Jane Eyre, which is the reason why it is featured on BrontëBlog. Sloane Hall is all that and more than that, a clear example of a novel where the overall result is more than the sum of its parts.

I began to wonder how it would feel to experience Jane Eyre as I had the first time I’d read it, to feel all those delicious emotions--Jane’s joy at discovering Rochester did love her, her subsequent heartbreak and then the glorious soothing of her sorrow—in the same way I had on my initial journey into Brontë’s story.It is to Libby Sternberg's credit that this particular element works so well.
