Call Number

What’s not to love about Jane Eyre? Gothic and passionate, it features the ultimate hero-Mr Rochester. And that gives Charlotte a top idea: she’ll look for a new Mr Rochester for her lovely mum. So when Charlotte finds the ideal man, she can’t believe her luck. He’s dark, brooding and mysterious. He’s PERFECT. But this real life romantic hero also turns out to be sarcastic and rude. Does Charlotte really want her mum marrying him?


Unlike the classic novel, Jane Eyre, Jane Airhead is a modern twist to this classic that puts a reality check on the dramatic romance that can only take place in Charlotte Bronte’s novels. In a world where there are no archetypal characters or situations, finding one’s true love and having a happy ending is more difficult than it seems. Will Charlotte’s ideal Mr Rochester be the perfect man for her mother?
