Book Description

The classic Gothic tale set in a future utopia, retold in five episodes.

In the late 21st century, the American "red states" have formed New Judah, a more perfect union founded on biblical principles, rejection of technology, and reverence for women.

Orphaned Jane survives a cruel childhood and harsh boarding school education to become a governess at a remote and beautiful estate where mysterious and damaged Fairfax Rochester threatens her with a lawless love that shatters everything she's struggled for.

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

Though plain and poor and without connections, Jane finds contentment in her new position ~ but a rough, mysterious stranger threatens the tranquility of mind she's fought so hard to achieve.

Episode 2: Jane has no intention of falling in love with Mr. Rochester, but as he draws her out, her attachment to him deepens. Still it's obvious Mr. Rochester prefers the company of a senator's daughter, the beautiful and accomplished Blanche Ingram ~ who seems determined to have Rochester for herself.

Jane tries to avoid Mr. Rochester, but when she saves him from an attack by a crazed servant, she comes perilously close to losing her heart to a man she can never have.

Episode 3: Things get steamy in Episode 3! A gypsy's visit brings out Mr. Rochester's trickster side. The fortune-teller has no charms for Blanche Ingram, but for Jane it's a different story altogether.

After a terrible night when Jane again comes to Rochester's aid, she finds solace and delight in his arms. She's called away to Gateshead where she makes a shocking discovery, but nothing is more astonishing than her homecoming to Thornfield.

Episode 4: Mr. Rochester draws Jane closer, using physical intimacy to strip away her defenses. She finds herself more dependent on him every day ~ but is it love or mere desire that binds them?

Jane feels increasingly overpowered by Rochester's personality and will. When the devastating secret of Thornfield Hall is exposed, she may not be able to save herself.

Episode 5: After Mr. Rochester's ghastly betrayal, Jane flees Thornfield and finds a home, career, family, and 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.

Jane's dreams of Rochester invade her waking hours and drive her back to Thornfield where she finds more than the Hall in ruins. To reclaim the man she loves, she'll have to risk everything she's fought so hard to win.


Editorial Reviews

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved This Series! April 26, 2014

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 defiantly keep reading from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best in Romance...for me! April 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had reviewed several of these "Mr. Rochester" books individually, as I had gotten them individually, and then out comes the boxed set....of course had known what I know now, I wouldn't have had to do this so many times....but as far as I'm concerned the author deserves as many good reviews as I'm asked to give. I absolutely will be reading this again,which is something I seldom do....there is just something about the flavor of this book, maybe the flavor is in the story telling, perhaps the building of characters, whatever, it suits my taste to a "T". I've never thought of myself as being an "old fashioned woman" but if this type of romance puts me in that category, then I am happy to be. I will admit, although ashamed to say, I have not read many of the old classics, but this book has given me good reason to rethink that, instead of boring, as we often thought when we were in school, they may actually be some very tasty desserts, compared to some things I have come upon in recent months.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This retell will NOT disappoint March 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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.
