Yes, that's exactly right--the real ending is the one Thursday engineers, where Jane returns to Rochester. In fact, my personal opinion is that the book never would have become a classic if it had had such a depressing ending as it has at the start of TEA. Anyway, it's a wonderful book; I'm halfway through it right now and I highly recommend reading it!
Welcome to the fforum, by the way! Have some Battenberg and tea.
