WUTHERING HEIGHTS (2CDs) – EMILY BRONTË – Read by Hannah Gordon -
The story of a doomed and dangerous love, Emily Brontë’s only novel is a wind-swept journey across the moors into the bitter world of Heathcliffe. A Liverpool foundling brought to Wuthering Heights as a child, Heathcliffe is consumed by a life-long obsession with Cathy, the daughter of his adoptive family. Wuthering Heights is an arresting insight into an insular world consumed by fear, hatred and loss. It also asks whether any hope will dare to bloom in such a barren and adverse environment. Moody, atmospheric and beautiful.
