Brightly Burning

We rated this book:


Jane Eyre in space is not only cool but something I didn’t think anyone could ever pull off. Brightly Burning tells the story of Stella, a young and intelligent woman who dreams of living a different life–one in which she’d have more potential to use her skill set. She’s an engineer at the spaceship she works in but takes a job at the Rochester to become a governess. She meets the captain of the ship, Hugo, who’s as broody as a cat. Of course she notices that he’s handsome and very young to be a captain of a ship.

This will appeal to readers who’ve read the classic tale of Jane Eyre–I think this book follows it loosely but in an interesting way. Stella was a peach to get to know, but there were times when I questioned her sanity. Luckily, I like my characters a bit flawed. The ending ends well enough that I want to read more from the author. She has a way with words that makes you feel as if you’re in space along with the characters. I loved it!
