Giveaways, Grown Up Books

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite works of classic literature, so I couldn’t be more thrilled to get my hands on a copy of Mr. Rochester by Sarah Shoemaker! This is the retelling we’ve all been waiting for. It’s Mr. Rochester’s story. His history. His life. And his turn to fall in love with small, sweet Jane.

And because everything is better when it’s shared with someone else, my friends at Hachette Book Group are giving away two copies of the book to my blog readers!

Mr. Rochester by Sarah Shoemaker. A retelling of Jane Eyre from Mr. Rochester's point of view.


About Mr. Rochester

“Reader, she married me.”

For one hundred seventy years, Edward Fairfax Rochester has stood as one of literature’s most romantic, most complex, and most mysterious heroes. Sometimes haughty, sometimes tender-professing his love for Jane Eyre in one breath and denying it in the next-Mr. Rochester has for generations mesmerized, beguiled, and, yes, baffled fans of Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece. But his own story has never been told.

Now, out of Sarah Shoemaker’s rich and vibrant imagination, springs Edward: a vulnerable, brilliant, complicated man whom we first meet as a motherless, lonely little boy roaming the corridors and stable yards of Thornfield Hall. On the morning of Edward’s eighth birthday, his father issues a decree: He is to be sent away to get an education, exiled from Thornfield and all he ever loved. As the determined young Edward begins his journey across England, making friends and enemies along the way, a series of eccentric mentors teach him more than he might have wished about the ways of the men—and women—who will someday be his peers.But much as he longs to be

But much as he longs to be accepted—and to return to the home where he was born—his father has made clear that Thornfield is reserved for his older brother, Rowland, and that Edward’s inheritance lies instead on the warm, languid shores of faraway Jamaica. That island, however, holds secrets of its own, and not long after his arrival, Edward finds himself entangled in morally dubious business dealings and a passionate, whirlwind love affair with the town’s ravishing heiress, Antoinetta Bertha Mason.Eventually, after a devastating betrayal, Edward must return to England with his increasingly unstable wife to take over as master of Thornfield. And it is there, on a twilight ride, that he meets the stubborn, plain, young governess who will teach him how to love again.

Eventually, after a devastating betrayal, Edward must return to England with his increasingly unstable wife to take over as master of Thornfield. And it is there, on a twilight ride, that he meets the stubborn, plain, young governess who will teach him how to love again.

It is impossible not to watch enthralled as this tender-hearted child grows into the tormented hero Brontë immortalized-and as Jane surprises them both by stealing his heart. MR. ROCHESTER is a great, sweeping, classic coming-of-age story, and a stirring tale of adventure, romance, and deceit. Faithful in every particular to Brontë’s original yet full of unexpected twists and riveting behind-the-scenes drama, this novel will completely, deliciously, and forever change how we read and remember Jane Eyre.

    OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!! “Jane Eyre” is my FAVORITE classic of all time!!!! The only retelling I’ve read so far — and actually, I did not finish it — is “Wide Sargasso Sea”, by Jean Rhys. That book was TOTALLY disappointing. I don’t care how much acclaim it has received. The author twisted Mr. Rochester’s personality to the extent that he was completely unrecognizable. So I’m hoping that Ms. Shoemaker has presented the REAL Edward Fairfax Rochester in her novel. From the synopsis, it SURE sounds like she has!! Crossing my fingers in hopes that I win this book!! Thank you SO much, to you and Hachette, for this FANTABULOUS giveaway!!!! YAAAAAAAAY!!!! <3 <3 🙂 🙂

      I KNOW, right?! Jane Eyre is my favorite, too. I love that book! I haven’t started reading this book yet, but it’s coming up in my TBR pile and I can’t wait! Mr. Rochester is a great character and I’m so excited to see how Ms. Shoemaker presents his side of the story. I have really high hopes. Good luck in the giveaway!
