Jane Eyre is the story of an orphan girl who overcomes an abusive childhood and the death of her best friend to become the governess of Thornfield Hall. At Thornfield Hall, she falls in love with Edward Rochester, an Earl with a dark secret. On their wedding day she discovers his secret: he already has a wife, an insane lunatic hidden in the attic. Shocked, Jane flees to her childhood home, to find that her aunt is dying. Even though her Aunt had treated her cruelly as a child, Jane forgives her. In her absolution of her aunt, and the realization that she is someone who can love and be loved in exchange, she returns to Thornfield Hill, only to discover it has burned to the ground and Rochester has been blinded. Jane and Rochester are married and soon Rochester's sight partially returns so that he is able to see his new-born son.
