Probably one of the best remembered and most re-read love stories of all time alongside that of Pride and Prejudice. When Heathcliff comes to live at Wuthering Heights as a child he forms a bond with his benefactor's daughter, Cathy. As the years pass the pair fall in love, but their happiness is short-lived and the events that unfold will bring terrible misfortune to Wuthering Heights. This passionate love story is as popular today as ever and this edition is a welcome addition to the Oxford Children's Classics series.

When Mr Earnshaw adopts Heathcliff and brings him to Wuthering Heights, he doesn't foresee the unbreakable bond that develops between the foundling and his daughter, Cathy-a relationship which will lead to a passionate and all-consuming love affair.

About the Author

Emily Bronte

Emily Bronte lived from 1818 to 1848. Although she wrote only Wuthering Heights and about a dozen poms she is accepted as one of the most gifted writers ever. Perhaps the intensity of her writing grew out of the extraordinary pressures of her home life.

Emily seldom left her home village yet produced one of the most powerful novels of the inner self ever written. She caught a cold at her brother’s funeral in 1848 and died a few months later.
