内容紹介

"Reader, she married me."
For one hundred seventy years, Edward Fairfax Rochester has stood as one of literature's most romantic, most complex, and most mysterious heroes. Sometimes haughty, sometimes tender-professing his love for Jane Eyre in one breath and denying it in the next-Mr. Rochester has for generations mesmerized, beguiled, and, yes, baffled fans of Charlotte Brontë's masterpiece. But his own story has never been told.
Now, out of Sarah Shoemaker's rich and vibrant imagination, springs Edward: a vulnerable, brilliant, complicated man whom we first meet as a motherless, lonely little boy roaming the corridors and stable yards of Thornfield Hall. On the morning of Edward's eighth birthday, his father issues a decree: He is to be sent away to get an education, exiled from Thornfield and all he ever loved. As the determined young Edward begins his journey across England, making friends and enemies along the way, a series of eccentric mentors teach him more than he might have wished about the ways of the men-and women-who will someday be his peers.
But much as he longs to be accepted-and to return to the home where he was born-his father has made clear that Thornfield is reserved for his older brother, Rowland, and that Edward's inheritance lies instead on the warm, languid shores of faraway Jamaica. That island, however, holds secrets of its own, and not long after his arrival, Edward finds himself entangled in morally dubious business dealings and a passionate, whirlwind love affair with the town's ravishing heiress, Antoinetta Bertha Mason.
Eventually, after a devastating betrayal, Edward must return to England with his increasingly unstable wife to take over as master of Thornfield. And it is there, on a twilight ride, that he meets the stubborn, plain, young governess who will teach him how to love again.
It is impossible not to watch enthralled as this tender-hearted child grows into the tormented hero Brontë immortalized-and as Jane surprises them both by stealing his heart. MR. ROCHESTER is a great, sweeping, classic coming-of-age story, and a stirring tale of adventure, romance, and deceit. Faithful in every particular to Brontë's original yet full of unexpected twists and riveting behind-the-scenes drama, this novel will completely, deliciously, and forever change how we read and remember Jane Eyre.

レビュー

"Satisfying... If you haven't read Jane Eyre, suspense is keen as the climactic end approaches. If you have - as will most of those who come to Mr. Rochester - the novel's dramatic final act provides the quieter pleasure of revisiting one of literature's great love stories from a fresh perspective."―USA Today

"Lovers of Emily Brontë and Jane Eyre, this one's for you: If you've ever wondered about the backstory of the man who Jane eventually teaches to love again, Mr. Rochester is officially wish fulfillment."―Refinery29

"A winner! Even if you never read Jane Eyre, you would still find Mr. Edward Fairfax Rochester fascinating and hang on every word of his extraordinary story, told in perfect nineteenth-century language. A richly rewarding read."―Margaret George, New York Times bestselling author of Elizabeth I: A Novel and The Confessions of Young Nero

"With flair and heart, MR. ROCHESTER tells the story that legions of Jane Eyre fans have been waiting more than a century to hear. Sarah Shoemaker's impressive novel takes readers into the mind of one of literature's most vexing and compelling romantic heroes and paints a nuanced portrait of a man torn between responsibility and passion. Packed with historical detail and a fresh look at a classic story, MR. ROCHESTER is a page-turning delight."―Tara Conklin, New York Times bestselling author of The House Girl

"Prepare to be swept off your feet by Sarah Shoemaker's stunning MR. ROCHESTER. As one of countless readers who adored Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, but never quite understood what Jane saw in Mr. Rochester, I was spellbound. Beautifully written, exquisitely crafted, and deeply engaging, MR. ROCHESTER is pure book club gold."―Mary Sharratt, author of The Dark Lady's Mask: A Novel of Shakespeare's Muse and Illuminations: A Novel of Hildegard Von Bingen

"Shoemaker's detailed writing will transport readers to a bygone age of romance and heartbreak."―Publishers Weekly

"Mr. Rochester is beautifully paced and compelling as it delivers a sweeping narrative and a new perspective to one of literature's most famous love stories... Though the novel will appeal most to fans of Jane Eyre, Shoemaker has recreated the spirit of the original, which will help those unfamiliar with the text enjoy this retelling."―BookPage

"It's interesting to see...how Shoemaker constructs a biography from the information provided in Bronte's novel and also to see the events familiar from that novel through [Rochester's] point of view. Recommend this to anyone eager for another take on Jane Eyre."―Booklist

"Shoemaker's elegant prose is worth reading at every step. Charlotte Brontë's mercurial hero is brought to brilliant life in this novel. Highly recommended."―Historical Novels Review

"There is a Dickensian quality to the story... The wonderfully executed details of Victorian life in England and Jamaica add to the atmosphere and lure the reader deeper into the tale... many will be fascinated with Edward's side of the story."―RT Book Reviews

5つ星のうち 5.0 I reveled in this retelling of Jane Eyre from Mr. Rochester’s point of view. 2017/6/2
投稿者 bookworm2bookworm - (Amazon.com)

I should start this review with saying that I’m not a fan of Fan-Fiction. I actually refuse to read them. I always felt that they are unnecessary and would ruin my opinion of the original work written. Boy, was I wrong! Ms. Shoemaker’s Mr. Rochester has forever changed my mind about Fan-Fiction.

I read Jane Eyre a long time ago and I’ve seen almost every version filmed of the classic tale. My favorite of them all is PBS special of it in 2007 with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens in the title roles. Watching that four hour special, for the first time ever I paid more attention to Mr. Rochester and from that point on I always wondered who he really was and what made him tick. No matter how well the original was written or how deeply the movies went into the character of Mr. Rochester, none went deep enough to explain this complex and intriguing man. Until now. Until this book.

I reveled in this retelling of Jane Eyre from Mr. Rochester’s point of view. I was glad Ms. Shoemaker has given Edward a backstory, and by dividing it into three books, it gave me time to appreciate the complexity of the character.

I would be remiss in not singing praises of Simon Shepherd for an amazing narration. It really brought Mr. Rochester to life.

If you’ve ever had doubt about Fan-Fiction, I’d like to ask you to take a chance and read this story. I think it’ll change your mind as it did mine. I’d also like to recommend this story to all of you that are into complex, brooding and intriguing heroes. Mr. Rochester is a fascinating read and I’m so glad Ms. Shoemaker has saw fit to write Mr. Rochester’s story.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Triumph! 2017/5/31
投稿者 S. Harrison - (Amazon.com)

An incredible read. I'm a fan of JANE EYRE and have read that novel many times. Sarah Shoemaker's MR. ROCHESTER kept me spellbound. I loved that she began with Rochester's childhood, and I loved that she so carefully developed a background for this complex character that rang so true psychologically. Many times I paused in my reading to think, "How did she know? How on earth did she ever know?" Congrats to Sarah Shoemaker on a beautifully written, melodic novel! Verified purchase.

5つ星のうち 5.0 I didn't believe it possible to love Edward Fairfax Rochester more, but... 2017/6/25
投稿者 Kim Bullock - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I have been in love with Edward Fairfax Rochester since I first read Jane Eyre at age 12. In college and graduate class discussions of the book, it pained me to hear people say they just didn't get what Jane saw in him. Even worse was when they would call him a controlling scoundrel.

This book perfectly explains, from Edward's point of view, every quirk, every motivation behind his behavior. It tells the story of his childhood, which had some interesting similarities to Jane's, and the awful truth about why Bertha was thrust into his life. There are unexpected twists and new characters weaved seamlessly into Charlotte Bronte's original tale.

After finishing MR. ROCHESTER, I now feel completely justified in my defense of his character all of these years. I also love him even more.
5つ星のうち 5.0 An absolute must-read for Jane Eyre fans! 2017/6/20

I'm breathless! Jane Eyre is one of my very favorite books, so my bar for a retelling was set quite high. And it was reached and exceeded. The language felt so authentic for the period, and Mr. Rochester's side of the story was so detailed, realistic, and tragic.

The book, now, has set a new bar for any future retellings of any classics, and it would be quite a feat to outdo it.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Clever concept, well written 2017/1/28
投稿者 J. Silva - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazon Vine レビュー ( 詳しくはこちら )
The concept here, to write a prequel to Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre" that focuses on the backstory of Edward Rochester, is a clever one. This isn't quite in the realm of the Jane Austen Project, in which established authors write a contemporary retelling of Austen's bestsellers. Rather, Sarah Shoemaker, a retired university librarian, has created a tale that intends to explain some of the mystery behind the gruff but passionate man who wins young Jane's heart.

For the most part, Shoemaker has succeeded. By taking some of the seeds Bronte sows in her book, the author grows the story, fertilizing it with fleshed out, and even completely new, characters, resulting in a first person account of a sad and lonely enough childhood to rival Jane's, and an adulthood spent avoiding his past and searching for a serene future. It's a primarily sympathetic story that develops an affection for the Rochester character in readers who may find Brontes description of him difficult to love.

The plot of Shoemaker's novel begins with the young, motherless Edward wandering around in the vast Thornfield Hall mansion with only servants and his contemptuous older brother for company. When the boys' father arrives on one of his infrequent visits home, Edward learns that he is being sent away to an unusual school run by an idiosyncratic teacher, Mr. Lincoln. Here, Edward makes the first friends he has ever had, and discovers that he is not the dullard his brother claims, but rather very bright indeed. After several years at school, he is apprenticed to a woolen mill owner to learn the ins and outs of manufacturing, and after several more years in service, he is finally sent to university at Cambridge. At this point, Edward is told by his father that this unusual education plan has been designed to prepare him to take over the elder Rochester's business interests in Jamaica. Jamaica, of course, is where the story starts to converge with what we know about Rochester from the Bronte book. Here is where he meets and marries the beauty Bertha, only to discover that her incipient madness was known not only to Bertha's family, but to Rochester's father. Naturally feeling betrayed, Edward also feels trapped, until he learns that both his father and his brother, who was slated to inherit the family fortune, have died, making him a very wealthy man. He returns to England with Bertha, hiding her in the attic of Thornfield, then goes wastreling across Europe until the dissipated life wears him down. He takes on young Adele, his late mistress's child, as a ward, hires Jane as Adele's governess, and the two stories continue simultaneously, with Shoemaker giving us Rochester's internal thoughts as he ponders his attraction to Jane and his determination to marry her despite his still legal attachment to Bertha.

It's here, when Shoemaker's alternate tale reaches the same time period as Bronte's, that we encounter some of the least satisfying writing. Rochester comes across as overwhelming in the Bronte book, but he is portrayed as even more intense, and definitely tortured, in Shoemaker's alternative view. His frantic behavior is exhausting, and his decision to torment Jane into loving him by pretending to love a local society girl is twisted and inexplicable. In re-reading "Jane Eyre," the versions of what occurs after Bertha is discovered match, certainly, and we do become more sympathetic to Rochester at that point, but the sections where he hides his love for Jane don't ring true in Shoemaker's book.

In all, there is a great deal to praise in "Mr. Rochester." Shoemaker has done great research, befitting a librarian, in depicting Jamaica during its slavery driven sugar manufacturing era, and her invention of Rochester's difficult childhood definitely makes him a more simpatico match than the forbidding rich man of Bronte's novel. I recommend this book as a good read that, while unnecessary, does interestingly supplement a great classic.
