Thank you so much to Sweet Cherry Publishing and Netgalley for having this ebook available to read and review.
Review: I don’t think I could ever not love this story, it’s so beautiful, sad, interesting and it always grips me in instantly.
Though I love that it was condensed down for the younger readers, giving them a wonderful opportunity to read this wonderful story and to have it in an easier way, I felt that some of the important aspects of the story were missing, it’s a shame they were missing but that’s okay as it happens in shorter condensed books like this.
I have always and will always love this story of Jane Eyre. It’s great that a true classic like Jane Eyre here can now be read and enjoyed by a younger audience, told in a much simpler way.
