Rochester was never a knight in shining armor, so this book didn't necessarily harm my perceptions of him, but it definitely humanizes the woman in the attic.

Not your usual Post WWI British upper-class novel..... A good read, tense, exciting (on many levels) and historical. Well done!

Technically, I read a different Judge Shiendlin book, but couldn't find it here on goodreads. She's a neat lady.

“Small wonder our national spirit is husk empty. We have more information but less knowledge. More communication but less community. More goods but less goodwill. More of virtually everything save that which the human spirit requires. So distracted have we become sating this new need or that material appetite, we hardly noticed the departure of happiness”
Randall Robinson, The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks
