Description

The only happiness in life is to love and be loved…

Set in the Loire Valley in 1850, Jane Grey tells the story of a frustrated painter and a beleaguered English governess who comes to France to tutor a flirtatious young heiress in the social graces. Jane meets Matthew Brontë, a wealthy count and gifted painter, the same way Jane Eyre met Edward Rochester in the book our Jane is reading at the time. Jane finds it uncannier still that Matthew is a cousin to the author of Jane Eyre.

As the weeks pass, Jane and Matthew discover they have much in common. They seem perfectly suited, apart from one significant snag: Matthew can’t marry without forfeiting his fortune, and Jane can only marry a man with the means to support her and her dependent relations back in England.

When faced with the choice between love and money, which will each of them choose?

My Thoughts: 

Jane Grey: A Homage to the Brontë Classics (The Brontë Brothers Book 1) by Nina Mason, set in the Loire Valley, France and England in 1850.
In “Jane Grey” the reader will
be shocked and thrilled by the similarities between the story of “Jane Eyre” to Matthew Brontë and Jane Grey. Matthew is the cousin of the author of “Jane Eyre” books.

A story of a frustrated painter, and a “kept” man and a beleaguered English governess who comes to France as a teacher, to a young heiress, thus meets Matthew, in much the same manner as Jane Eyre met her Mr. Rochester, except Jane ran away from and her feelings for Matthew until she just couldn’t possibly run anymore.

Readers will also find a slight departure from Nina Mason’s other stories. Masterfully written, I felt, anyway.
This is a story of disappointment, fortitude, unwavering love, hardship, the difficulties of a painter, in the 1850’s, and the romance of the century.
Can wealth come before love? If you had a choice between weath or love, which would you choose love or the money? A delimma for most, especially when you meet the love of your life.
“The only happiness in life is to love and be loved.”, my favorite passage.

“Jane Grey” has many avenues for which to take the reader on, here’s just a few, forfeiting a fortune but never marry, never marry unless the spouse can provide for the other’s dependent family, or throw all away for marriage, love and finding a HEA.

I found “Jane Grey” to be endearing and romantic with a bit of a sad side. I enjoyed watching Matthew and Jane find their joy and contentment. Don’t be mistaken, in “Jane Grey”, while the story has similarities, this story takes a few twists, turns, with a few surprises along the way, lingering doubts and and a round about detour to happiness.

Ms. Mason is a talented author and once again, her talent shines through with the telling of “Jane Grey”. She never disappoints her readers in her plots, her characterizations, or her details. I’m truly excited for this new adventure. I hope readers will enjoy reading “Jane Grey”, it truly makes you wish to read “Jane Eyre” after all these years. Yes, I haven’t read it since high school! This story is definitely a departure from her other stories. The passion is not explicit nor over done, if that makes sense. I throughly enjoyed “Jane Grey” and I think you will as well.

Fans of the “Brontë Classics” will surely enjoy “Jane Grey”, with unusual circumstances, contentment and finally finding true love, what’s not to enjoy. This is an incredible story by Nina Mason! I can’t wait to read the next installment in what promises to be an amazing series.
Bravo, Ms.Mason!! Well done, indeed!
