Life has not been kind to orphaned Jane Eyre. Treated harshly by her Aunt Reed and bullied by her spoiled cousins, Jane is glad to be sent to Lowood School to receive an education. Finally, she can be free of her uncaring family and learn how to make her own way in the world. Years of studying pass, until finally, Jane takes on her first job as a governess to a young girl in the remote Thornfield Hall. Jane tries to convince herself that the strange noises she hears in the night are just the creakings of an old house ... but soon a deeper mystery begins to unfold, and long hidden family secrets will soon be revealed.
