Wrapped in a flashback of then-octogenarian Adele, rediscovering the letters during World War I, the narrative begins shortly after Celine's death. Her dying wish was that Adele be given the letters. As she reads them Adele remembers her childhood and youth and learns about her mother's life. The reader learns what happened to the characters in Jane Eyre after that novel ended. Grace's return to the world and to life, Rochester and Jane's children, and Adele's life. Adele attends the first blue-stocking girls' school in England and Bedford College for Ladies at the University of London, and goes to the Crimea as one of Florence Nightingale's nurses. She then marries a Baronet and goes to live at Drayton Abbey, his family estate in Shropshire.
