The Denver Post reviews Re Jane:
Park's story resonates most, though, not as a retelling of the Charlotte Brontë classic "Jane Eyre" — which it is — but as its own modern story of what it means to fit in, to belong and to be who you want to be. (...)
Hiding like Easter eggs in a Marvel movie, fun, throwaway references to Brontë's work will no doubt bring a smile to "Jane Eyre" lovers, too.
Reader, try not to leave charmed. (Emilie Rusch)
No More Grumpy Bookseller  is giving away a copy of the book.

This year, artist Nanci Hersh, captured the Flower Market grounds with an acrylic painting that included Rockford Tower and Salem United Methodist Church along with the flower market grounds.

But the painting, made into prints, looked like a spring day. (Molly Murray)

The Boston Globe reviews the latest film version of Far from the Madding Crowd:
Within the universe of Victorian novels – you know, “Jane Eyre,” “Great Expectations,” “Vanity Fair,” et al – Thomas Hardy’s “Far From the Madding Crowd” has it all. Published in 1874, after being serialized in 12 parts in Cornhill Magazine in London, Hardy’s fourth novel is a sweeping and entertainingly melodramatic saga of love, jealousy, tragedy, swordsmanship, fire, rain, mass drunkenness, and sheep . . . lots of sheep, in pastoral 19th-century England. (Ed Symkus)
The Sunday Times makes a list of 100 TV dramas to love, including Jane Eyre 2006. Authors I Have Interviewed... talks with Janice G. Ross:
What was your very first book you ever read that you truly loved?
The first book I read and love was Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. It was one of many British Lit books I read on an annual basis. I would read and re-read each year, and use a dictionary to build my vocabulary and gain a better understanding of the written word.
