Today's Friday 56 comes from another of my favourite reads titled 'Wide Sargasso Sea' By Jean Rhys which was written as a prequel to Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre although it does also stand on it's own. Wide Sargasso Sea tells the story of Bertha Mason, who was Mr Rochester's first wife, the madwoman in the attic of Thornfield Hall. Jean Rhys uses such beautiful, sensory descriptive language and this was one of the things I loved most about Wide Sargasso Sea.
"Christophine cried bitterly but I could not. I prayed, but the words fell to the ground meaning nothing." (p. 55/56)
