For a renowned romance novel, this is a savage and
cold tale. (See Camille Paglia's chapter on it in _Sexual Personae_.) Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, an orphan raised
in Catherine's home on the moors of northern England, are enthralled with each other but marry other people. Out of the violence
of their emotions and the opposition in and between their families come the destruction of nearly all the Earnshaws of Wuthering
Heights and the Lintons of nearby Thrushcross Grange. Though the narrator Mr. Lockwood pieces together most of the tale in
the early 19th century, most of the events take place earlier, in the second half of the 18th.

seem to hate each other... but love is hidden behind hate, an impossible love destined to last till the end.
Katy, Resident Scholar
A breathtaking story of obsessive love AND hate. Two tortured
souls devided by social structure. This book will leave you as chilled as the wind on the Yorkshire moors but in complete
awe of the power of love!!
