The book Jane, by April Lindner, is a modern retelling of Jane Eyre, a well-known book which I have never read. Even though I haven't read it, I was just as entranced by this book, as people who have read it will be. The book starts of slow and steady, but not hard to get through. Halfway through, the book takes a surprising turn that unless you know the book, you cannot predict. In the end, you feel the happiness of the characters, but also a sense of longing, of needing to know how everything works out. Even with that sense of longing, I was satisfied and enjoyed the book.
