A-Z Challenge (Book-Jane Eyre)

This was such a lovely book to read, a true masterpiece. In college I read a lot, I mean, really A LOT :). I preferred and I still prefer classic books and this book is one of my favorites.

I loved this book so much that for my wedding cake, I wanted to be written a lovely quote from the book:

|”Reader, I married him.”

A-Z Challenge (Book-Jane Eyre)

This book starts by telling the story of a young orphan girl who lives with her parents’ family.

Her aunt and cousins don’t like her at all so they send her to a school, far away from them.

She learns on that school to be a teacher, learns dancing, painting, to crochet, languages and finally when she graduates, she wants to work and to practice what she has learned.

Her first job is to a gentleman named Edward Rochester, she would be the teacher to the little Adele. Rochester is a severe man and sometimes he is irritable or cranky.

But Jane sees through him, she sees that he is actually a good man so she endures his behavior.

Little by little, they fall in love, but Rochester has a secret when Jane finds out, she is crushed, she is hurt that Rochester lied.

I stop here so that you will read the book, I really encourage you, because is so interesting and you can learn so much from it.

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”

“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.”

I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself.”

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”

“Reader, I married him.”
