The consuming forces of love and nature combine to overtake the lives of Heathcliff and Catherine in this haunting tale set on the wild Yorkshire moors. The story, told brilliantly through a series of flashbacks, begins when Heathcliff, a gypsy waif, is brought home by Catherine's father to live with the family. As the 2 children grow up, they form a strong and tempestuous attachment that grows to command their lives and the lives of everyone around them. Emily Brontë's only novel is also one of the most original and enduring of English literature. Her masterful prose evokes a passionate intensity unmatched in any other work.
