I just finished the third book in the Eyre Hall Trilogy by Luccia Gray. I gobbled it up over two days and decided to introduce it to everyone as a suggestion from Rosie Amber.

I was dragged to this disturbing place and ensnared in a cage twelve nights ago by a group of armed men who barged into Eyre Hall while I was alone.
Pretty ensnaring, yes?
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.
Midsummer at Eyre Hall is the third and final volume of The Eyre Hall Trilogy, which chronicles the lives of the residents of Eyre Hall from the beginning to the height of the Victorian era.
Following the death of her second husband, Richard Mason, Jane is finally engaged to the man she loves. However, her oldest son, John Rochester, will do everything in his power to stop the wedding and take over Eyre Hall and the Rochester Estate, with devastating consequences for Jane.
Romance, mystery and excitement will unfold, based on the lives of the original characters, and bringing to life new and intriguing ones, spinning a unique and absorbing narrative, which will move the action from the Yorkshire countryside to Victorian London, and magical Cornwall.
Introduce the main character using only three words.
Passionate, determined, generous
Anyone who loves historical fiction, romance, a strong woman and of course, Jane Eyre
Your favorite line/scene.
This one was not easy, but I’m choosing something that was a surprise:
I curled into him as he held me and kissed the top of my head “By the way, I just remembered, who’s Mr. de Winter?”
He’s the owner of Manderley, the large house by the sea. He also seems to own most of the farmland around here. Why?”
In the first book of the Eyre Hall Trilogy, All Hallows at Eyre Hall, which begins twenty-two years after her marriage to Edward Rochester, Jane is coping with the imminent death of her bedridden husband – and the revelation of his unspeakable secrets. Richard Mason has returned, instigating a sequence of events which will expose Rochester’s disloyalty to Jane, his murderous plots, and innumerable other sins.
In the second, Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall, Following Edward Rochester’s death, Jane Eyre, who has been blackmailed into marrying a man she despises, will have to cope with the return of the man she loved and lost. The secrets she has tried so hard to conceal must be disclosed, giving rise to unexpected events and more shocking revelations.
Midsummer at Eyre Hall completes this trilogy
This book is great on many levels. Romance, yes, but it also clearly illustrates the plight of women in the 18th century, the insane, and orphans. William Savage just had a wonderful post on marriage in the 18th century that arrived just as I was reading this book.
As indicated, Luccia also surprises us with a link to Rebecca, which sets the scene for her next book!
