WIDE SARGASSO SEA

Synopsis

A prequel to Charlotte Brontë's 'Jane Eyre' (7377), this is Jean Rhys' story of Antoinette Cosway from the time of her youth in the Caribbean to her unhappy marriage with Mr Rochester and relocation to England. Caught between his demands and her own precarious sense of belonging, Antoinette is inexorably driven towards madness.
