The Other Wife is a tribute to one of the best loved heroines in English Literature – Jane Eyre. We asked ourselves what sort of a person would Jane have become if she had grown up in a different time and place. And we asked ourselves about Bertha, the mad woman in the attic.
The Other Wife tells the story of two girls from very different backgrounds. Both are taken from their homes and set adrift in a world that doesn’t want them. Fate brings them together in the Australian outback, at a vast property known as Thornfield, owned by the enigmatic but compelling Edward Rochester.
