Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead and subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity. She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman's passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed.
If you know anything about the 1893 World's Fair then you've probably already have read this! If not, this is a great introduction to one of the most interesting events in American history. There are two stories in one - one of Daniel Burnham and his leadership in the creation of the fair's architecture. The other story being the life and actions of one of the first serial killers, H.H. Holmes. Great way to hit all the historical thriller spots.
