What a joy to hear a favorite classic performed with excellence! Nadia May’s skill as a storyteller has the listener soon believing Jane Eyre is speaking directly to him or her, “the gentle reader.” The story of Jane, orphan governess, and her tragic love, Mr. Rochester, has the same plot as many of today’s romances, but Brontë’s masterful use of language and description moves it to a higher plane. Her portrayal of the social milieu of the times and Jane’s view of realities and her yearnings to transcend them will give present-day women much to ponder. A timeless work flawlessly presented. T.R.
