Thornfield Hall

Published by Corvus an imprint of Atlantic Books 2014 in paperback and eBook

A clever and page-turning retelling of the classic novel, Jane Eyre. This is Jane Eyre meets Downton Abbey, told from the point-of-view of the servants.

Alice Fairfax, the widow of a local clergyman and the housekeeper at Thornfield Hall has serious doubts when her employer adds an unexpected and heavy responsibility to her usual duties. She does as Mr Rochester asks and swears on the Bible to keep secret the existence of a woman who is to be hidden on the third floor.

This is the story Jane, confined to the schoolroom and the drawing room, never knew. Only Mrs Fairfax has access to the attic on the third floor and below stairs where the servants keep their master’s secret safe.
