Cover of: Wuthering Heights | Emily Brontë

About the Book

A tale of passion set in the bleak Yorkshire moors in mid 19thC, far from the Victorian uprightness, Wuthering Heights depicts the mutual love of Catherine and Heathcliff till destruction rends the narration; yet cruelty is only to be met with forgiveness in the following generations. Romantic, impassioned and wild, it is also a dark journey in the human soul.

Family, class, and fate work cruelly against these two star--crossed lovers.Wuthering Heights is a beloved classic of English literature.
