Orphaned Jane emerges from a cold, hostile upbringing at Lowood Institution to take her place as governess at Thornfield, home of Mr Rochester. With her petulant but loving charge, Adele, and the housekeeper Mrs Fairfax as her sole company, Rochester remains a distant, mysterious and yet imposing presence. As time goes by, however, Jane’s life at Thornfield becomes increasingly unsettled, and strange and ever more frightening occurrences lead her towards a shocking revelation.
