Friday 56, #32

It’s time for  Friday 56!  It’s a book meme hosted by Freda at Freda’s Voice. Be sure to visit her blog if you would like to participate!

From Freda’s Voice The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post in the Linky on Friday 56. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple!

Here is my contribution:

This is my last Friday 56 that will focus on the Bronte sisters and their stories. And to complete it, at least in my own mind, I include a response to Charlotte’s story by Jean Rhys. This is the story of the mad woman who lives in the attic in Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. She is the secret Rochester tries to hide unsuccessfully. There is so much that Bertha represents that she deserves her own story, I think. And Jean Rhys gave her a voice and a story that changes the way most readers think and read Jane Eyre.

Have you read Wide Sargasso Sea? What do you think about it? Does it change the way you think about Jane Eyre? Let me know in the comments below. And be sure to link to your Friday 56 so I can visit your blog. Happy reading!
