Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (1847)
gothic fiction classic
Orphaned as a child, Jane has felt an outcast her whole young life. Her courage is tested once again when she arrives at Thornfield Hall, where she has been hired by the brooding, proud Edward Rochester to care for his ward Adèle. Jane finds herself drawn to his troubled yet kind spirit. She falls in love. Hard. But there is a terrifying secret inside the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall.
"Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs."
Every single word seems so carefully chosen. When every word sounds like it’s been deliberately selected for that sentence in particular, you can’t help but feel the emotions so keenly. The atmosphere is dark and adds a drearier mood to the story, that suits the Northern England/Yorkshire inspired setting perfectly.
