A beautiful and romantic book. Jane is a wonderful character. She is strong and independent, but she is also tender and loving. Like all of us, she is secretly vulnerable. Jane's love for the brute Rochester is both heart-breaking and hopeful at the same time. Bronte's story is an unforgettable and wonderful read. ~ Reviewed by Krysta Piccoli

Availability: Special Order
Published: Dial Press Trade Paperback - January 14th, 2014

Vonnegut's letters are just as cutting and hilariously cynical as his books, if not more so, because they are so honest. The reader gets a glimpse at the struggles he endured on the way to becoming the amazing writer we all know him to be. His life was full of false starts and so many, many rejection letters. ~ Reviewed by Krysta Piccoli
