Charlotte Brontë, writer of Jane Eyre and eldest of her writer-sister clan, was apparently extremely prolific from a very young age. A manuscript has been uncovered that the author wrote when she was just 14-years-old and is soon to be sold at auction. It just so happens to include a precursor to Bertha, Mr. Rochester’s mentally ill wife from Jane Eyre. The news is huge but the book itself? Very, very tiny.
