Jane Eyre Study Guide
for the novel by Charlotte Bronte
Jane Eyre is the story of a mistreated orphan who learns to rise above her adversities by relying on God's grace and the intelligent and independent spirit He has given her. The path of Jane's life is lined with temptations and difficulties: her desires war with her conscience and her faith is sorely tested. But though Jane sorrows, she is not broken. She learns and grows, and she rises above life's storm.
Jane's first ten years are unhappy ones. She is raised in the home of her aunt where she is unloved and despised. After a passionate outcry against her condition, Jane is sent to a charitable institution where she spends eight years. She moves up through the classes and eventually becomes a teacher. At eighteen, Jane's desire for expansion calls her to move on.
Jane finds a position as governess at Thornfield Hall. Her employer takes a lively interest in Jane. Her vigor and purity answer some yearning of his soul. Just when it seems that bliss is within Jane's reach, a dark secret is uncovered that causes her to flee from the one that is precious to her. It seems Jane is doomed to be forever separated from her love; but, after a year of suffering, God's providence and a familiar voice call her to return to the one she loves.
