"You are a strange child, Miss Jane," says Bessie her nurse, " . . . . a little, roving, solitary thing." And strange she seems to us as we follow this intense little orphan through her adventures, her heartaches, and her spiritual crises to eventual peace. Strangely wonderful too is this recording by Literate Ear. Betsy Hershberg's bright, snappy, fully voiced British reading sounds just like the nighteen-year-old Charlotte Brontë must have, or should have. And confers all the intense power of Edward Rochester, the throaty dialects of country servants, the suitably nasal voices of clergymen. Yet a passionate intimacy with Jane, who still, after 150 years, appeals to the strange boy and girl in all of us. P.E.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
