So haunting. I love Rhys‘s work, but I wasn‘t quite prepared for this one. It doesn‘t help that I‘m the person who reads Jane Eyre and roots for Jane to the point of wanting Bertha in the attic to disappear. This book explores the overlooked question: why does Rochester have a woman in the attic, and what did he do to make her lose her mind? Antoinette‘s story parallels Jane‘s, but ends on a decidedly more tragic note.
