I didn’t like this prequel to Jane Eyre. It is the story of the first Mrs. Rochester before she became the “madwoman in the attic”. Mr. Rochester is portrayed so unsympathetically that I didn’t feel that there was any connection with the same character in Jane Eyre. I also found at times that I really wasn’t sure what was going on. I’m surprised that this title made the 1001 Books You Must Read list
