Book: Jane Eyre
Why You'll Love This Character:
Jane Eyre is steadfast.
Jane, like many of the others in this collection, has a multitude of reasons to give up, to conform her nature to her situation, to lose herself in difficult circumstances. She's an orphan, an outcast, and has no qualities suited for a life of leisure. Her future lies in serving others, in making young girls become who they're capable of being, a luxury she was not given as a child.
Despite being in the shadows of her own life, Jane remains strong, resolute, and unwavering in her own convictions. She chooses justice over happiness, duty over whim, and in the end, love over personal comfort, all with an admirable willingness.
