Product description


One of BookBub's "25 of the Best Books Arriving in 2021"

"In this thrilling remix of Charlotte Brontë's work, Matthews skillfully transforms a well-known story into a truly original tale." - Kirkus Reviews

"Bertha Mason Rochester shines, dominating her scenes with vitality and strength. The style, too, is spot-on, reprising the spirit of 19th-century Gothic prose without descending into mimicry." - Publishers Weekly

"Reader, I loved it." - Austenprose

"[Matthews] retells Charlotte Bronte's classic story in a way that will keep fans of the original novel totally gripped from cover to cover... Fresh and dynamic... Fast-paced and spellbinding...a book you will have a hard time putting down." - Readers Favorite

"Matthews' writing style is flawless... A thrilling, spooky ride filled with heart-stopping suspense-I couldn't put it down! Highly recommended!" - Syrie James, USA Today bestselling author of The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Brontë and Dracula, My Love

"[A] captivating and ingenious retelling of Jane Eyre with a supernatural twist. Smart, suspenseful, and deliciously spooky, JOHN EYRE is a must-read; I loved everything about it! - Ashley Weaver, author of the Amory Ames Mysteries and the Electra McDonnell series

"One of the most moving, suspenseful, innovative and remarkable retellings of a classic in the history of, well, ever... Every page is sheer rapture as [Matthews] moulds popular source material into a spell-binding creation so wholly her own." - Rachel McMillan, author of The London Restoration and The Mozart Code

"A wonderful sinister atmosphere, deliciously creepy characters, and a female character who is a powerful force... A true homage to the gothic genre without being derivative... Highly, highly recommended!" - Clarissa Harwood, author of Impossible Saints and Bear No Malice
