Praise for Mrs. Rochester's Ghost

“A modern American Jane Eyre...Marcott's reworking of this Gothic classic holds its own."
Kirkus Reviews.

“This imaginative take on Charlotte Brontë’s Gothic novel has several satisfying nods to the source material, but veers away just enough to create a refreshing new experience. Marcott’s Jane is a formidable protagonist…Fans of Jane Eyre who enjoyed Rachel Hawkins’s The Wife Upstairs will appreciate this equally enjoyable retelling from Marcott.”
Library Journal (starred review).

“[A] clever, lively update of Jane Eyre…[a] twisty tale of madness and desire…”
Publishers Weekly.

“Smart, thrilling and completely unexpected, Lindsay Marcott delivers the goods in the brilliant Mrs. Rochester's Ghost. Highly recommended for readers who like incandescent prose and deep deceptions.”
Gregg Olsen, #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author of If You Tell.

"What’s more delicious than a novel with so many twists and turns that you don’t know who’s telling the truth until it’s over—and even than you’re not so sure? Lindsay Marcott’s, Mrs. Rochester’s Ghost, is just that book. A contemporary gothic novel haunted by the ghosts of Du Maurier and Henry James that is impossible to put down. Go for it.”
Barbara Shapiro, New York Times Bestselling Author.

“Gothic and elegant, Mrs. Rochester’s Ghost captivated me from the first page and kept me reading all night. Lindsay Marcott has created a seductive Big Sur landscape, peopled it with brilliant, complicated characters, and set in motion a thriller both terrifying and emotionally satisfying. I loved it.”
Luanne Rice, New York Times Bestselling Author.


The truth will haunt her.

If it doesn’t kill her.
