Description

A passionate young woman of high courage... IN THIS SEQUEL TO JANE EYRE, young Janet Rochester is consigned to Highcrest Manor and the guardianship of the strict Colonel Dent while her parents journey to the West Indies. As Janet struggles to make a life for herself, guided by the ideals of her parents, she finds herself caught up in the mysteries of Highcrest. Why is the East Wing forbidden to her? What lies behind locked gates? And what is the source of the voices she hears in the night? Can she trust the enigmatic Roderick Landless, or should she transfer her allegiance to the suave and charming Sir Hugo Calendar? Whether riding her mare on the Yorkshire moors, holding her own with Colonel Dent, or waltzing at her first ball, Janet is strong, sympathetic, and courageous. After all, she is her mother's daughter... "THE VERY FIRST SCENE PULLED ME IN AND THE SUSPENSE CONTINUED TO BUILD TO THE VERY END. I'M VERY IMPRESSED!" - Historical-Fiction.com
