The Memoirs of Jane E, Friendless Orphan
Born not in a past of corsets and bonnets but into a future of cloning and bioterror, could Jane Eyre survive? This Jane is an “unclaimed embryo,” the living mistake of a reproductive rights center–or so her foster family tells her. At age ten she is sold into slavery as a data mule, and she must fight for freedom and identity in a world mired between bioscientific progress and the religions that fear it. Jane grows up and escapes to take a job as a homeschooler, but what can she do when she finds herself falling in love with the first man to treat her with kindness–her employer? Could a rich man of social regard ever love someone without even a name of her own? And can Jane’s love for him survive the deepest of betrayals? This Jane’s story celebrates and reexamines the continued relevance of a literary classic, demonstrating that self-respect and genuine love are worth a fight, regardless of where–or when–we live.
Praise for Jane E
“I have often reflected that if Jane Eyre were to be set in modern times she would have to be Catholic instead of Anglican for the story to follow the same structure as it does in the original, but what author could have the talent for capturing Bronte’s beautiful prose? Erin McCole Cupp apparently. Not only does her prose capture that confessional humble tone of the original, but her plot and setting force readers to consider it’s themes in a whole new light.” A. R. K. Watson, Catholic Reads
“Jane Eyre has long been a favorite of mine, and I enjoyed the first part of this retelling immensely. While appealing to the modern reader’s ear, it remains faithful to the truth of the original, even retaining the charm and tone of Bronte’s voice.” Carolyn Astfalk, Rightfully Ours
“I love the old classics but I also love futuristic stories. “Unclaimed: The Memoirs of Jane E.” combines both elements in a fun-to-read, hard-to-put-down book. With imagination and a great writing style, Erin McCole Cupp has created a powerful futuristic story that is a real thought-provoker. Science fiction readers will love the creative futuristic elements. At times humorous and other times heart-wrenching, this story delves into issues worth considering as society advances.” Theresa Linden, The Liberty Trilogy
