An American Heir

READ Ô An American Heir Erpoint to Jane a smart and independent woman whose intelligence far surpasses her means Hoping to earn some money so she can finish college Bea takes a job as a nanny for Ethan Stuart a mercurial hotel mag. Modern Jane EyreWhile the author credibly transitioned much of the story into the modern times some of Jane Eyre s original passion was lost While the original novel is one of my favorite love stories with lines and scenes I can read over and over I felt very little investment in Bea and Ethan s tale I felt the philosophical discussions came off as pretentious rather than Jane s honest and uniue personality I also felt the religious trope was laid on pretty thick with uotes from the bible I simply skimmed

READ Ô An American Heir An American Heir A Modern Retelling of Jane Eyre lifts Charlotte Brontë's classic from nineteenth century England and plants it firmly on twenty first century American soil Bea Stephens is the modern count. 45 stars I tend to steer clear of Jane Eyre retellings because I know the original book so well that the retellings seem to leave me both disappointed and craving the passions of Bronte s world This is the first time I ve come across a straight retelling that actually does move the Jane Eyre tale lock stock and barrel into the current era She hews so closely to the original it almost feels as if she had a spreadsheet set up to make sure that each part of her story fell into the same blocks For a die hard fan of Jane Eyre one who at one time had the book memorised it s a great deal of fun Since I knew what was coming I derived no small amount of pleasure trying to figure out how she d move this or that part of the tale into the 21st century How will she handle the gypsy woman at the party The book loses that half a star for the handling of one element St John Rivers I maintain that the way a modern author handles the Rivers Interlude is the make or break of any Eyre pastiche He is such a difficult character in the original without his sisters to soften him he s even worse Chrissy Breen Keffer did a marvelous job of making him both sympathetic and insufferable the way St John Rivers herein called Jonathan Stone should be But my problem came at the very end of the Rivers Interlude After building a very plausible and conflict filled scenario that moved pompous pious Rivers into the modern era Breen Keefer concluded the whole thing in a rush that felt both forced and unrealistic That didn t matter too much though because by that point you know what s coming and you just want her to say her goodbyes to the fellow and get back to Rochester If you re at all a fan of Bronte s timeless classic I suggest you invest the dollar to give this book a bit of your attention You ll indeed find out just exactly how timeless Bronte s plot and characters truly are

READ Ô An American Heir Nate While Bea and Ethan come from different backgrounds practically different worlds the distance between them is ultimately bridged by their love for one another Read An American Heir and meet a modern Ja. I wanted to like this book so much because a friend whose opinion I value recommended it to me Unfortunately I did not enjoy it I did not see much chemistry between Bea and Ethan I didn t believe that in the 20th21st century Ethan would be able to realistically hide a wife In the same way when Bea left Ethan I didn t think there would be much conflict because I assumed he would find her uickly and easily When he didn t I was disappointed I did however enjoy watching Bea interact with the Adele counterpart That relationship was developed in a lovely way I love the story of Jane Eyre and I think done correctly it could be interestingly interpreted for modern times I just don t think Ms Keffer was successful
