A recent book on the world of the Brontës in India:
A Marble Column: Jane Eyre in India Paperback
by Cicely Havely (Author)
ISBN-13 : 978-1708375133
November 21, 2019

Charlotte Brontë gives the last words of Jane Eyre to the uncertain destiny of St John Rivers, the ardent missionary Jane rejected for Mr Rochester. So what happened to St John In India? "A marble COLUMN develops the characters and themes of Brontë’s original novel in language which echoes her style but pares down its Victorian elaborations. Set against a rich background in which the patterns of Imperial rule in India are not yet fully hardened, this lively and far-reaching sequel puts great loves to the test on a voyage of inner discovery.
