My Mr. Rochester is a retelling of Jane Eyre set in an alternative reality – a future two generations after the red state/blue state divide has brought on a second civil war ~ this time, north and south go their separate ways, and the “red” states form the country of New Judah based on biblical principles and a simple, low-tech lifestyle.
In the 2080s, Jane lives in New Judah. She grows up in Idaho then moves to the state of Jefferson to take a job as a private governess where her occasional glimpses of the world outside make her question New Judean rigidity as she struggles to understand her growing love for her emotionally damaged employer, Edward Fairfax Rochester.
