Wuthering Heights (Annotated Keynote Classics)
Publisher: MMW Books, LLC
A haunting tale of Gothic romance and bitter vengeance entwines two families in a life and death drama spanning three generations. The windswept landscape of the Yorkshire moors is a fitting backdrop to the equally stormy inhabitants of the bleak farmhouse, Wuthering Heights, and the noble mansion called Thrushcross Grange. When circumstances bring the Linton and Earnshaw families together with the orphan Heathcliff, a complex saga of all-consuming passion, self-destructive revenge, and gripping drama ensues.
