Tanya Landman returns with a brilliantly realised and truly accessible retelling of one of the greatest novels ever written.
Orphaned as a child, tormented by her guardian and cast out to a harsh boarding school, Jane Eyre has been raised in the shadow of cruelty and isolation. But when she takes a job as governess in Thornfield Hall, where secrets lurk in the attic and strange laughter echoes through the night, Jane meets the elusive Mr Rochester - and her life is irrevocably transformed.
Poignantly and powerfully retold in this stunning edition, Jane Eyre is the tale of a spirited heroine's search for love, independence and belonging.
Tanya Landman studied for a degree in English Literature at Liverpool University before working in a bookshop, an arts centre and a zoo. Tanya won the Carnegie Medal in 2015 with Buffalo Soldier and is renowned for her thought-provoking novels set in nineteenth-century America. Tanya lives in Devon.
