Book Recommendation: The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins


Bookseller at Novel Bay Booksellers

The Wife Upstairs is a hard book to put down. Appearances are not what they seem in this fast-paced, Southern Gothic retelling of a Jane Eyre story.

Jane is hoping for a new start when she begins a dog-walking business in the upscale Thornfield Estates. But underneath a glossy surface, jealousy and forbidden love threaten to undo everything the residents built. When Jane starts to fall for the mysterious and handsome widow, Eddie Rochester, her past threatens to ruin it all. What she doesn’t know is that Mr. Rochester had a few secrets of his own.
