About the Book

A short story by Evie Wyld from the collection Reader, I Married Him: Stories inspired by Jane Eyre.

In ‘Behind The Mountain’, an English wife struggles with the loneliness of a new life in Canada and finds herself drawn to the town’s outsider.

Edited by Tracy Chevalier, the full collection, Reader, I Married Him, brings together some of the finest and most creative voices in fiction today, to celebrate and salute the strength and lasting relevance of Charlotte Brontë’s game-changing novel and its beloved narrator.

Critical Praise

<p>Praise for the full collection, READER, I MARRIED HIM:</p><p>‘Dazzling’ DAILY MAIL</p><p>‘The success of this book owes much to [Chevalier’s] enthusiasm … it’s quite amazing to see the quality of work on show’ EVENING STANDARD</p><p>‘A terrific set of stories by some of our leading novelists, each of whom engages with a chosen aspect of Jane Eyre’ THE NEW STATESMAN</p><p>‘A clever idea well-executed; a treat for fans of short fiction and for Brontë's many ardent fans’ KIRKUS REVIEWS</p><p>‘Exemplary…written by some of today's best female writers’ THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE</p><p>‘These pieces create a beguiling picture of women and men and desire, in which everyone is searching, like Jane, for happiness and wondering whether marriage is really an answer. The book acts as a prism spreading all kinds of literary and historical refractions, and it’s a reminder that Charlotte Brontë, too, has many sides’ GLOBE AND MAIL</p> -
