Terrible! I'm so glad I checked this book out of the public library and didn't buy. The writing isn't bad, but Bailey has got the characters completely wrong - Each one of them.

I even had my tries with "sequels to" Jane Austen. All I can say is, it's better to stick with the original.

Anyone who LOVES this book should be locked inside the Red Room with Mr. Brocklehurst's continuous sermons.
I think it is generally best to leave a good story alone and unless you are the original author you should leave your guess of what happens next in your head. While waiting for my daughter I skimmed and read this at the library. It was on the for sale shelf and I can see why. It might have been a good stand alone story but I didnt like where it took characters that I already loved. Not for me!
Although well written and the fact that it was nice to have a sense of closure... I can't help but feel that maybe the author should have left well alone.

Quite often, she was jumping back to Jane Eyre which meant I had to dig out that book to refer back to in order to better understand the story.

A stupid book - I vowed I'd never read one of these classics' 'sequels' again after wasting my time with 'Pemberley' some years ago... but this was a freebie, so I did... and wish I hadn't. I've given it two stars rather than one because it managed to keep me vaguely entertained.

Naturally this is not as good as the original, "Jane Eyre," but it's still a fun read: How did the infamous fire at Thornfield *really* start? And does Edward still have secrets?

I shouldn't torture myself by reading bad sequels to the Bronte canon.
