In a modern and twisty retelling of Jane Eyre, a young woman must question everything she thinks she knows about love, loyalty, and murder.

Jane has lost everything: job, mother, relationship, even her home. A friend calls to offer an unusual deal—a cottage above the crashing surf of Big Sur on the estate of his employer, Evan Rochester. In return, Jane will tutor his teenage daughter. She accepts.

But nothing is quite as it seems at the Rochester estate. Though he’s been accused of murdering his glamorous and troubled wife, Evan Rochester insists she drowned herself. Jane is skeptical, but she still finds herself falling for the brilliant and secretive entrepreneur and growing close to his daughter.

And yet her deepening feelings for Evan can’t disguise dark suspicions aroused when a ghostly presence repeatedly appears in the night’s mist and fog. Jane embarks on an intense search for answers and uncovers evidence that soon puts Evan’s innocence into question. She’s determined to discover what really happened that fateful night, but what will the truth cost her?

“Smart, thrilling and completely unexpected, Lindsay Marcott delivers the goods in the brilliant Mrs. Rochester. 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.
