Review

Where Bronte hints, Rigel explores. The tension felt in Bronte's Eyre, is ten fold in Rigel's ... Private sitting room conversations are made public. Touches become more intimate, and looks become more brazen. "My Mr. Rochester" isn't in the realm of New Adult (despite my description of it) instead it's the version all classic lovers know was buried behind an era's expectations. ~ KindleObsessed

From the Author

AUTHOR'S NOTE ~  I hope you enjoy this version of Ms. Brontë's classic as much as I did writing it. My goal was to remain true to the ideas and adventures of the original while translating the language and setting to fit with 21st century sensibilities. 

Part 1: Mesrour Orphan Jane Eyre survives a loveless childhood and harsh boarding school education to become a governess at a remote and beautiful estate.

Part 2: Master Thornfield's master is a little damaged, a little cruel, and a little kind. Jane has no intention of falling in love with him. Besides, he prefers the company of a beautiful and accomplished senator's daughter.

Part 3: Trickster A gypsy's visit brings out Rochester's trickster side, and the fortune she tells Jane is the strangest of all.

Part 4: Lover  Physical intimacy with Rochester strips away Jane's defenses ~ and leaves her devastated after a shocking revelation.

Part 5: Liberator Jane flees Thornfield and finds a home, career, family, and the independence she's always wanted. But when a handsome and righteous young man offers a respectable but loveless marriage, Jane can't forget her former master.

I have loved the story of Jane Eyre from the time I read it at 11 years old, a long time ago. The loveless, friendless orphan girl who managed to carve out a life for herself in the face of poverty and adversity and ultimately find love is a story well worth reading. The new version stuck so closely to the original that I did not mind the changes not one bit. I really liked the back story of how the United States had a sucession and a new country was born. A country, New Judea that embraced the 19th century way of life that was so opposite in morals, ideals and the use of technology to the remaining USA. I really would have liked to hear more about that but what was told was enough to get the point across. Sometimes you forgot that the story was taking place in 2085 and thought it was actually taking place in the 1800's. The writer would then add some new bit of the story that reminded you, such as the prohibition of birth control, the manner of dress and the patriarchal system of governing in New Judea and how the USA was dependent on the use of technology, men and women were equals and birth control was a necessary part of life. It is eerily similar to what is going on in the world today. Two totally different belief systems trying to gain prominence in this county. I really loved this version of Jane Eyre. I am going to read it again real soon. The writing was wonderful, it flowed and brought you into the story. I will be looking at this writers other books. Buy this series you will not regret it.

Choose this set only if you have time to read because you won't want to put it down. Even though I know Jane Eyre... it kept me hooked.

It was very well written. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books and I was hesitant at first about reading this series. But I when I saw Theresa Weir recommend it, that made me purchase it and I do not regret it. Love the way LK Rigel retold the story yet you still see the old ways. I recommend this story and I will definitely keep reading from this author.

It is an intriguing premise of there being a clown car republic in the middle of the USA. I loved reading this retelling whereas I hated having to read the original.

Great series.

LK Rigel does a terrific job in recrafting Bronte's classic, Jane Eyre. I started the series with trepidation, hoped that the story would elaborate one of my favorite books. I was not disappointed. The story is told well, with little disconnection to the original. More so, this series explored and explained so many puzzles and gaps. Obviously Rigel is a fan of this novel, her writing shows a great deal of thought about circumstances and empathy with the characters. For example (and spoilers)
* Bertha Rochester's descent into madness. Never understood why young Rochester didn't figure out she was mad until after the wedding. Rigel's explanation was perfect and just set well with me.
* This dystopian world in 2081, Victorian setting allowed the characters to move freely. Fun references to contemporary works like Putnam's trilogy or 30 Shades of Gray or 20th century movies. There were also some interesting bits about the future effectiveness of antibiotics, and most certainly contraception.
* Jane Eyre is such a true feminist -- looking within herself for answers, objectively measuring the world. How frightening was the society of the future which had sunken into a misogynistic mire. Yet Jane was the same Jane of the Bronte novel.
* Rochester was terrific and a great improvement on the Bronte figure. His character is more detailed. His bond with Jane more tangible. His attraction to this woman below his station finally made sense. He was such a miserable man and Jane was clearly his redemption. He was also an ass. He masqueraded to find out her secrets. He flirted shamefully with another to make her jealous. He was impulsive and never considered the consequences to Jane.
