Resisting Mr. Rochester by Sharon Booth

Cara fell in love at a very young age with her own Heathcliff. Problem is, he turned out to be a bad poet who expects her to support him. She finally gives up on him and gets a new job in Yorkshire as a nanny to a young girl. Her new problem is that her employer is Mr. Rochester.
I loved this book so much. While the plot is a contemporary version of Jane Eyre, this book is so much more. Ms. Booth writes exceedingly well and is also very funny. The romance between Ethan Rochester and Cara takes some different and surprising turns while staying true to the original. The little girl is named Adele (as in the original), but I laughed out loud when I read the reason why. Same with the lunatic in the attic.
A terrific book from a terrific author. And I love the book cover!
