Overview
-

I saw everything. They told me everything. I played a part in everything. Nelly Dean has spent her life serving the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights. She has quite a tale to tell. She wants to tell it to you. Nelly’s story is as wild and stormy as the moors on which it is set. She talks of haunting, hatred, love, grief and the desire for revenge. Her tale begins and ends with the mysterious Heathcliff. Where has this strange, silent boy come from? Will you fear him or pity him? What drives the adult Heathcliff to destroy others, even his own son, and to dig in dark graveyards? Is it love or vengeance, or both? This famous story of Heathcliff and Catherine will thrill you and chill you to the bone.

About The Author
-

Emily Brontë (30 July 1818 – 19 December 1848) was an English novelist and poet best known for "Wuthering Heights", her only novel.

VANESSA LUBACH has been working as an illustrator, painter and printmaker since graduating from Brighton Art School in 1990. She lives in Norwich with her illustrator husband Peter and her three children.

GILL TAVNER was an English Teacher and Head of Department before turning to writing when she had young children of her own. She has also taught English in South East Asia, worked as a personal trainer, been a management trainee in an insurance company, led treks in Africa, run her own business and painted fake tattoos on Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Perhaps it is this variety that makes her such a versatile writer.
