A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Even after the success of Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bront#65533; could persuade no one to publish her first novel, The Professor, which was published posthumously.Orphan William Crimsworth was raised by aristocratic uncles and educated for the clergy, but rejects that life for work at his brother's Yorkshire mill. Treated badly there, William seeks his fortune in Brussels, where he finds work as a schoolteacher and falls in love. Charlotte Bront#65533;'s portrayal of a self-made man and his relationships in a society that worships property and propriety reveals her as a social critic of insight and power.

I recommend this book if you like Charlotte Bronte's other works. It's a bit different - told from a man's perspective, but well written and I liked the characterization a lot. There are a lot of similarities with Villette but this story has a happier ending. I loved the teacher-student relationship, although she was a little too deferential to him.

As Charlotte Bronte's first novel, it's not her best, but the language is compelling and vivid and the story is fairly interesting.
