1. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Mr. Rochester has an eye on Jane even to marry her but he has a secret: his wife Bertha, yes wife is hidden in a chamber upstairs. She is hidden because she is not entirely of sound mind, you may even call her mad. Although Grace Poole, the servant, cares for her, Bertha escapes a few times disturbing the air with her shrieking laughter. In addition, doing damage to a well intended dress, setting a certain someone on fire and attacking a guest at Thornfield Hall. Bertha stricks for the last time by burning Thornfield Hall and committing suicide [I hope this is not a severe spoiler for anyone who has not read the book].
