Can love flourish when surrounded by deception and intrigue?
A lush and enthralling reimagining of the classic Jane Eyre, set amongst the stars.

Stella Ainsley leaves poverty behind when she quits her engineering job aboard the Stalwart to become a governess on a private ship. On the Rochester, there’s no ration on water, more books than one person could devour in a lifetime, and an AI who seems more friend than robot.

But no one warned Stella that the ship seems to be haunted, nor that it may be involved in a conspiracy that could topple the entire interstellar fleet. Surrounded by mysteries, Stella forges a warm connection with the brooding but kind, 19-year-old Captain Hugo. But as they grow closer, his unpredictable behavior causes suspicions to mount. Without knowing who to trust, Stella must decide whether to follow her head or her heart.

Alexa Donne’s breathtaking debut will seduce and beguile you, a story perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer and Amie Kaufman.
