Wuthering Heights

The sole book written by Emily Bronte, this tale of Catherine and Heathcliff shows the depth of their love for one another and how that deep passion finally kills them both, forcing Heathcliff to withdraw from society and slide into vice. English literary experts consider Wuthering Heights to be a masterpiece. It was first published in 1847 under the alias Ellis Bell.

She said it again, “Wasn’t it inquired?”

“No,” I said with a smirk. “You are the right person to ask that question.”
