My Mr. Rochester 3 (Jane Eyre Retold)
Print Length: 148 pages
Publisher: Beastie Press (December 31, 2013)
The classic Gothic romance set in a future utopia, retold in five episodes.
Episode 3: Things heat up in episode 3!
In the aftermath of a terrible night, Jane finds solace and delight in Rochester's arms. She's called away to Gateshead where she makes a shocking discovery, but nothing is more astonishing than her homecoming to Thornfield.
I love this cover for My Mr. Rochester 3. Can you guess which scene it's for?
Most movie/tv versions leave out the visit from the fortune-telling gypsy, but I love that scene because it's all about one of Mr. Rochester's bad-boy flaws: he's a trickster!
And not a particularly kind one.
In My Mr. Rochester, both Jane and Rochester are flawed heroes, both damaged by their pasts. It's fun seeing how the damage has kinked them up a bit - and how they try to iron out those wrinkles.
