Jane Eyre

I was blog stalking a few weeks ago while researching for Civil War clothing info and I read about a lady that had just finished reading the book Jane Eyre written by Charlotte Bronte. I cataloged that back in my mind.
I few days later I was at our wonderful public library and saw that movie. Masterpiece Theater did that movie in 2006 so I grabbed it. It sat at my house for about 10 days and the other night I decided to watch it instead of going to bed. It was fabulous. I loved it.

Wikipedia says:
Jane Eyre is a famous and influential novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë. It was published in London, England in 1847 by Smith, Elder & Co. with the title Jane Eyre. An Autobiography under the pen name "Currer Bell". Harper & Brothers of New York came out with the American edition in 1848. It begins, "There was no possibility of taking a walk that day."

I enjoy Jane Austen's books that have been made into movies, but I have not read any of them, just watched them. I enjoy them, but some of it seems so wacko to me, like the mother in Pride and Prejudice! Anyway, if you like Victorian Era movies, but can't handle the silliness of Austen, you should try Jane Eyre. I think you will like it. Plus, when he smiles, it makes my heart pitter patter!
