This is Jessi Wakefield and you are listening to Check It Out. Today I would like to recommend Sarah Shoemaker’s 2017 reimagining of Jane Eyre entitled Mr. Rochester.
Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books ever written. And in my mind, there is no greater character in fiction than that of Jane herself. So how could I resist picking up a book written from the viewpoint of Mr. Rochester? I thought it would make for a very interesting backstory to, although far from perfect, one of the most swoon worthy literary characters in all of his Byronic hero glory.
