Jane Eyre: An Autobiography (version 4)
Jane Eyre is an extraordinary orphan girl who is treated horribly by her aunt Mrs. Reed and her children. She is sent away to a girl’s boarding school called Lowood. She studies there for a total of six years and graduates to teach at the same school for two years. After two years of teaching, she leaves Lowood to go looking for another job, at 19. She meets Mrs. Fairfax who decides to give her the job as a governess at Thornfield Hall. She eventually falls in love with Mr. Rochester, the master of Thornfield. She is happy being a governess to Adele and being in love with Mr. Rochester. Mr. Rochester then decides to propose to her: However, Mr. Rochester has a deep dark secret; one that stops the marriage and restricts them from being together forever. She runs away and lives a new life with a new family, St. John and his two sisters. St. John finds out that Jane Eyre is a beneficiary of her uncle’s wealth and insists that she marry him. She refuses because she does not love him and runs away. She goes back to Thornfield only to find that Mr. Rochester’s circumstances have changed for the worse. Summary - bartleby.com
