This is a recent novel with more than obvious Jane Eyre connections:
I Am No Bird 
Kayleen Barlow
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (10 Mar 2014)
ISBN-13: 978-1496160010

When life takes away her loved ones and hope for the future, Marie finds herself clinging to something she never expected - books. One book in particular, Jane Eyre, reveals to her the strength and resiliency a young girl with no fortune, family, friends, or prospects can have. Marie calls upon the courage of her heroine to carry her through the dark days of uncertainty and desperation in her own life.
London, a teacher comfortably established in her ability to move beyond her past, is flung into insecurity when she realizes that hiding from everything that might hurt her is keeping her from finding what she really wants. She can no longer hide between the pages of her favorite books, so she steps out to embrace the experiences of her life and discovers what her own story might bring.
