Wuthering Heights (Paperback)
Set in the north of England on the wild moors and craggy hillsides of Yorkshire, it has always been touted as a romance, but can surely be seen as a story of passionate revenge. Catherine and Heathcliff have a relationship that is ever-suffering. Their dark pull toward each other is fierce and somewhat tormented. It depicts what in humans can not always be controlled.
This book is definitely my favorite classic of all time! I cherish it differently every time I read it.— laurie
