All her life, all Jane Doe has ever wanted was a name, a family and someone to love.
She’s suffered many hardships, but none have come close to her treatment at the hands of the enigmatic Edward Rochester.
The only thing Jane wants to do is love Edward openly, but he has forced her to keep their budding romance hidden. Despite giving him an ultimatum, his will is set in stone and he refuses. His secrets run so deep they’ve driven a wedge between their hearts, keeping them apart but still longing for one another.
Driven by death, madness, rivalry, violence and love, their story inevitably intertwines once more, and they realize they cannot escape the affair they began in the middle of the English summer… but they soon learn not all things were meant to stay hidden.
When Edward’s darkest secret finally sees the light of day, will Jane be able to forgive him, or will she be forced to leave Thornfield forever?
From International Bestselling author Amity Cross, comes Paradox, the second novel of The Thornfield Affair, a modern reimagining of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Jane Eyre.
Returning to Thornfield was something I have been looking forward to as we continue with this modern day rendering of Jane Eyre.
I have been enjoying and loving this modern twist of a classical favourite. Jane and Edward's parths are inter-twined but there is a self-destructive nature to their relationship.
I did hope that we would get a modern day understanding of Blanche's mental health condition but it stuck to the old fashioned stereotypes. This did disappoint me slightly. However, it didn't take away the enjoyment of reading this book.
Once again the rugged beauty of the natural surroundings was mirrored in the atmosphere and the emotions of the characters. With everything that has happened in Paradox, I am eagerly awaiting the conclusion to this journey.
Amity Cross is the International Bestselling author of wicked stories about rock stars looking for redemption, gritty romances featuring MMA fighters and dark tales of forbidden romance. She loves to write about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don’t take s**t lying down.
Amity lives in a leafy country town near Melbourne, Australia and can be found chained to her desk, held at ransom by her characters.
Don’t send help. She likes it.
