Jane Eyre Conclusion

We had our meeting on June 6th to discuss Jane Eyre. Overall I think everyone agreed that they really enjoyed the book. I encourgage all who weren't able to complete the book to still keep going with it, I think you will all really like it.

We discussed some of the following, plus some:
1. The character of Mr. Rochester.
2. Jane and whether she was driven by love or ambition.
3. The treatment of those that were mentally unstable.
4. Jane's desire to be independent.
5. The people in Jane's life that helped shape her character for good.

Thank you all for coming to this last book club. It was fabulous! I can't wait to get started with the next book, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

Cheese Cake Recipe:
1- Cup Cottage cheese
1- 8oz package of cream cheese
3/4 cups- sugar
1 tsp- Vanilla
Mix all ingredients together. I find it is easier to mix it in a blender if you have one, it helps get the cottage cheese chunks out and makes your batter smoother. When mixed, put the batter into a graham craker crust, I usually cheat and just buy one pre-made. Pre-Heat your oven to 350. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until most of the jiggle is out. Let cool for a bit, then put in the fridge to allow the cheese cake to set up.
