In Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë tells the story of Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on the bleak Yorkshire moors, who is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before: of the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and her betrayal of him. As Heathcliff’s bitterness and vengeance is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past.

IRead. DoYou? of Washington, 10/24/2011
Forget the Twilight Series and Edgar! When I was a teen, I thought it was all about Heathcliff's brooding devotion to Catherine even 20 years after her death. With that in mind, I was curious to reread Wuthering Heights now as a middle-aged mom. The verdict? Well, the dysfunction of the whole clan was a lot more uncomfortable for me than it was when I was younger, but overall it really is a great book and I still love it. I will probably not have my own children read it until they are in late high school, but it is one that I will definitely have them read as a classic work of literature.
