Jane Rochester: Restoration
What happens next?
This is a novel for readers of Jane Eyre who want to know more. Charlotte Brontë tells us that Jane and Rochester marry, that their marriage is happy and successful, that
they have at least one child (a son), and that Rochester regains the sight in one eye after about two years.
But she gives readers very few details about the further development of their relationship after they are reunited and once again promised to one another.
How do they cope with the many issues that lie between them, as yet barely discussed? How does Jane cope with Rochester’s disabilities, and how does he cope with all the frustrations that they must inevitably engender in him?
How does Jane restore to him his health, strength and self-confidence? And is it possible for her also to restore to him a measure of both independence and freedom?
This novel seeks to answer these questions and many others...
