The classic novel of unrequited love. Heathcliff is found in Liverpool and brought to stay at Wuthering Heights, a farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors. There he meets Catherine and he falls in love. Alas, Catherine chooses to marry Edgar Linton instead. Jealousy and vengeance form the core themes, and while this is Emily Bronte's only novel, it stands the test of time. A must-read.
