Review--Jane Steele

Jane SteeleJane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ever read a Victorian novel where you wished the heroine would just pick up something sharp and stab the evil people beleaguering her?

Me too.

Enter Jane Steele, who doesn't tolerate pedophiles, wife beaters or rapists and makes her displeasure known with extreme prejudice. She's a fan of Jane Eyre (while seeing some of the flaws in poor Miss Eyre's choices) and has to make her own way as a governess for a rather unusual household in the English countryside.

I thought it was delicious, and I read it in one afternoon. There was intrigue, and intriguing characters and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll look for more of Ms. Faye's novels after enjoying Jane Steele
