Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre ... I dusted this one off and devoured it - really hit the spot and wrapped itself around my heart. In no way is she perfect, but Jane knows her mind, and finds her way to fulfillment in her own way. An orphan with no place, this elfin girl wins a life because of her own strength. She is one to love.
Im so sucked into this right now! I highly recommend the series
