Like the house itself, Wuthering Heights
is set on the bleak Yorkshire moors, a fitting backdrop to this story of love, torment and revenge, and a landscape familiar to Emily Bronte
. Heathcliff is a foundling, adopted and raised as one of the Earnshaw children. With this act of charity , the seeds of ardent love and jealouosy are planted. Catherine Earnshaw becomes devoted to Heathcliff, while her brother Hindley always views him as a rival for Wuthering Heights. Emily Bronte
only ever had one book published, but it's one that lives forever in the mind with its doomed love affair and strange wild poetry. This compact edition is nicely boxed and features silver coloured edging on the outside of each page.
