A powerful gothic tale of passion, romance and unrequited love. The title of this gothic thriller is taken from the barren, wild moors of Yorkshire where the doomed love of Catherine and Heathcliff is played out in a capricious landscape. In Brontės bold narrative, the unfortunate, headstrong Heathcliff is brought into the household as a young boy by the owner Mr Earnshaw, to live as brother to his two children, Catherine and Hindley. This sets in motion a train of events that has captivated readers and film-makers alike, with its bold emotions, strident language, agonising deaths and the psychological self-torture of the main characters, a fate that that consigns them ultimately to an eternity of pain. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and fantasy to science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic. Each book features a brand new biography and glossary of Literary, Gothic and Victorian terms.
