Book Review: Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye

From the youngest of ages, I have loved reading a good mystery. Through in period costumes and a brooding, unreachable leading man, set in a Victorian mansion and I'm hooked. In addition, I've loved all of Faye's other writings, so when I had the opportunity to read her newest book I jumped at the chance.

Mirroring the sentiments of Jane Eyre, with plenty of Bronte-like workings, Jane Steele is the governess we all knew we could be. Her life is much like her namesake, but our new heroine decides to not live in the shadows but push on out to the light and take some matters into her own capable hands.

I absolutely loved every word of it beginning to end and encourage fellow lovers of the classic Bronte, Arthur Conan Doyle, or Daphne Du Maurier to indulge is this beautifully written story. You will not be disappointed.

I received a free copy from Net Galley in exchange for a honest review.
