I'm a huge fan of retellings, so I was thrilled to get my hands on a Lindsay Marcott's novel, Mrs. Rochester's Ghost - a modern retelling of Jane Eyre. How exciting!! Suffice it to say, I was hooked right from the start and found myself reading late into the night. I just loved the dual POVs - Jane and Beatrice (Rochester's wife) - and found them useful in piecing together what the full story was about the Rochester estate, Thorn Bluffs (what a name!) and its inhabitants. Such a great read!
Marcott has created a terrific interpretation of Jane Eyre with Mrs. Rochester's Ghost- the creepy estate, the volatile Rochester, the ghostly visions, and Jane's naïveté. I really enjoyed getting to know Jane and Beatrice - reading about their experiences with Rochester and Thorn Bluffs - OMG! I love how the estate itself becomes a character. And, the story was just fun to get lost in. I would happily recommend Mrs. Rochester's Ghost to fans of Marcott and fans of Jane Eyre - you will LOVE this book!!
