LoveReading View on Jane Eyre - retold by Gill Tavner

Jane Eyre is poor, parentless and plain, detested by her aunt and cousin; her future looks bleak.  Follow her story as she seeks independence and then eventual peace in the arms of Mr Rochester. Real Reads bring this and Wuthering Heights to a new audience.  Both of these retellings have been checked for accuracy to the originals by the Collections Manager at the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth.  The characters in both Wuthering Heights and in Jane Eyre - Rochester, Heathcliff, Jane and Catherine will resonate with readers of all ages, whilst the atmospheric illustrations perfectly complement the narratives.

This and the other retellings by Real Reads are a fantastic way to introduce children to some of the best-known and best-loved classics; beautifully presented and skilfully retold (and condensed – 64 pages in total) and illustrated, they are true to the original plot, capture something of the flavour and tone of the original work, while simplifying the narrative and dialogue. They’re primarily aimed for younger readers – 8-13 year olds but are also a great ‘quick fix’ for teenagers and adults.

Jane Eyre - retold by Gill Tavner Synopsis

Jane Eyre is poor, parentless and plain. Her future looks bleak. Janes’ aunt and cousins detest her. Life at Lowood School is cruel and dangerous. What inner strength can the young Jane find?


Seeking adventure and independence, Jane sets out alone. When she meets the surly Mr Rochester, she had no idea of the effect they will have upon each other. Will Jane find happiness in Rochester’s home, where strange laughter haunts the nights? Is she strong enough to survive the horrors that await? Is she strong enough to do what is right? Will she ever mean anything more to anybody than poor, plain Jane Eyre?
