Part of the Penguin Clothbound Classics range.
In a house haunted by memories, the past is everywhere...
As darkness falls, a man caught in a snowstorm is forced to shelter at the strange, grim house, Wuthering Heights. It is a place he will never forget.
There he will come to learn the story of Cathy: how she was forced to choose between her well-meaning husband and the dangerous man she had loved since she was young. How her choice led to betrayal and terrible revenge - and continues to torment those in the present. How love can transgress authority, convention, even death.
Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

Bronte brilliantly masters the anti-hero, the dark, addictive side of love and social divides.
The reader should be objective about the unreliable narrators.
On a shallow note, this book has the most beautiful cover!
