Jane Steele: A Confession

Imagine if Jane Eyre had inspired a more vengeful, deadly version of herself. What you'd have is this book's heroine: Jane Steele, an orphan turned vigilante seeking revenge against those who kept her from her rightful inheritance. Raised by an artistic and mentally frail mother after her father's death, Jane resides in a small cottage near the estate that is rightfully hers. Her aunt and cousin live in extravagant Highgate House and hold nothing but disdain for Jane and her mother.
