A writer all her life, Charlotte published her first novel, Jane Eyre, in 1847 under the manly pseudonym Currer Bell. Though controversial in its criticism of society’s treatment of impoverished women, the book was an immediate hit. (click here to read more)
Her novel, Jane Eyre, has seen many adaptations through the years and a new one came out this year. I can't wait to see it. This has always been one of my favorite movies.
The first adaptation I ever saw was with Joan Fontaine and Orson Wells.
Without having seen the new one, my favorite out of them all is with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson.

Now to talk my husband into buying the new one :)
Sounds like a good Mother's Day gift to me.
Have a great day in the Lord!
