New Review of Jane Eyre's Sisters

Created Date: 2015-06-19

Jane Eyre's Sisters by Jody Bower has received a stellar review by Bruce Epperly on The review, which reads, "As I read this insightful text, transformative for both women and men, I couldn’t help but remember the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, 'all who wander are not lost.' Bower’s text, describing the journey of the heroine, often occurring despite the opposition of powerful male figures and society as a whole, gives witness to a vision of growth that is non-linear, often meandering, and with no clear or final destination. In fact, the destination may not be in the future or clearly marked, it may be found in the walking itself, or as feminist theologian Nelle Morton proclaims, 'the journey is home,'" can be read in full here.
