Wuthering Heights

Front Cover
Open Road Media, Apr 22, 2014 - Fiction - 446 pages
The immortal story of love and obsession in the North of England

Atop the stormy Yorkshire moors sits Wuthering Heights, a manor inhabited by Mr. and Mrs. Earnshaw and their two children, Catherine and Hindley. The fate of the manor, and the family that lives in it, is forever changed when the Earnshaws adopt a dark-skinned orphan boy named Heathcliff. As the years pass, Heathcliff and Catherine fall deeply in love, but even their great passion cannot survive the pressures of society and the black force of jealousy. Driven away by a broken heart, Heathcliff leaves Wuthering Heights only to return years later, bent on the cruelest kind of revenge.

Published just one year before Emily Brontė’s untimely death, her only novel shocked Victorian reviewers with its vivid depictions of passion and brutality. It is now considered a masterpiece of English literature and one of the most enduring romances of all time.

About the author (2014)

Emily Brontė (1818–1848) was the sister of Charlotte and Anne Brontė. Educated by their clergyman father and inspired by the works of Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, and Sir Walter Scott, all three sisters wrote poetry and fiction under pen names. Emily Brontė’s only novel, Wuthering Heights, received mixed reviews when it was first published, but is now considered a masterpiece of English literature.
