  I read this book before I found the site and it is my favorite book ever! Everyone should read it, Jane Eyre is awesome!!!!! Upvote (0) Downvote (0) 11/12/ Carl Heerwagen. 5. This book is a classic. No movie I ever seen has done this justice. Heavy with true christian morality. jane keeps her morals and gets the guy too/5(15). She has presented in a series of novels, of which "Hearthstones" is the latest (and which have included "Purslane," "Portulaca," "Janey Jeems"), the people and country she knows so well in.
