Wuthering Heights

The story Wuthering Heights is a must read for any classic lover and for those die hard romantics. Though the story doesn’t follow the usual sappy romantic path, the wild, uncontrolled love that the two characters Heathcliff and Catherine have for each other is so strong that it seems that even death cannot do them apart.

Heathcliff arrives at Wuthering Heights as a young orphan boy from Liverpool to be raised along with Hindley and Catherine; the children of the manor. Will he be treated as an equal? Forced to work as a common labourer in the fields of Thrushcross Grange, the house of Edgar Linton who hopes to win the hand of Catherine, Heathcliff vows to have his revenge. Revenge on not just Edgar but the entire families of Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights for his separation from his love.

Will this love destroy both him and Catherine? Will new love blossom within such hatred?

Wuthering Heights is by Emily Bronte, one of the famous Bronte sisters.

Another book that should be given a try is Jane Eyre by her sister Charlotte Bronte! The Bronte sisters offer a range of emotions and transport you to the moors of England. There also seems to be a deep dark motif that constantly hovers over the story, giving the reader all the suspense and the mystery that they need.
