Review: Jane_e, Friendless Orphan: A Memoir

Jane_e, Friendless Orphan: A Memoir
by Erin McCole-Cupp

Plot Summary:
Born not in a past of corsets, bonnets and arranged marriages but in a future of human cloning, bioterror and fleeting relationships, could Jane Eyre survive?

Review:
Wow, this has become my favorite modern take on Jane Eyre. There were enough nods to the original, while also giving to the characters and the story unique spins to make the book intriguing and absorbing in it's own right. I especially thought the development of the romance was well done and enjoyed these particular characterizations of Jane and Thorne as Rochester.  It was actually really romantic at times, in that chest-clutching, heartfelt sighing kind of way.  I really loved this book!
