Description
"The gothic, windswept moors of England; a grand, rustic estate; and a fraught love story of one woman caught between two men who love her powerfully: Inspired by Emily Bronté's beloved classic, Solsbury Hill brings the legend of Catherine and Heathcliff and that of their mysterious creator herself into a new, contemporary story of love and unlocking the past. When a surprise call from a dying aunt brings twentysomething New Yorker Eleanor Abbott to the Yorkshire Moors and a family estate she is suddenly to inherit, she isn't sure what to expect--but it isn't what she finds. Having left behind an American fiancé here, Eleanor encounters the enigmatic Meadowscarp McLeod--the ward of her aunt, who challenges and changes her--as well as the pervasive presence of Bronté herself, and a family legacy they may share. With winds that can carve stone and bend trees, and ultimately people, the moors are another world. Time works differently here, and the legacy of the past can be just around a craggy, windswept corner. For Eleanor, it takes the form of ancestors, alive and dead--and a devastating romantic history that bears on her own life, on the history of Wuthering Heights, and the destinies of all who dwell in its shadow"--
