Waiting on Wednesday (70)--Jane by April Lindner

Release Date: October 11, 2010 from Poppy


Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, a world-famous rock star on the brink of a huge comeback. Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance.

But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is soon tested by an agonizing secret from his past. Torn between her feelings for Nico and his fateful secret, Jane must decide: Does being true to herself mean giving up on true love?

An irresistible romance interwoven with a darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers.

I love Jane Eyre. It's the one classic that I remember really enjoying in school. And I think it's about time someone gave this awesome book an update. This sounds fabulous!! I don't think that's the finished cover, but it's all I could find.


  1. I loved Jane Eyre! I can't wait to read this one!

  2. I snagged a copy of this at BEA; I'm SO excited to read it. I adore Jane Eyre. <3

  3. Love the cover, not loving the pink letters, though. I think they should've been more gothic or something.

    Very interesting premise - can't wait till this comes out!

  4. It sounds...different.
    I hope I can see my book on someone's WoW some day. Would you take a look at the newly-released cover and trailer and tell me what you think?
