Jane Eyre, Reincarnated

Since Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre, rolled off the press more than 150 years ago, no one has been able to keep their hands off of it. It’s been made into a musical, movies, reincarnated as a radio play, prequels and sequels have been penned. It’s an unwritten rule that every few years someone dusts off the classic to give it new meaning. Most recently, that person is writer Margot Livesey. Growing up without a mother, Livesey discovered Jane Eyre, and in it she found a dear friend. In her new book, The Flight of Gemma Hardy, Livesey recasts Jane Eyre in the 20th century. Set mostly in Scotland in the '50s and ’60s, the story follows Gemma Hardy, a girl burdened with bad luck, who comes of age just before the tide of feminism breaks.
