In a house haunted by memories, the past is everywhere …
As darkness falls, a man caught in a snowstorm is forced to shelter at the strange, grim house Wuthering Heights. It is a place he will never forget. There he will come to learn the story of Cathy: how she was forced to choose between her well-meaning husband and the dangerous man she had loved since she was young. How her choice led to betrayal and terrible revenge - and continues to torment those in the present. How love can transgress authority, convention, even death.
And how desire can kill.

Third or fourth rereading. For some reason, this book strikes me as more violent each time I read it. I don't think I want to attempt it again for a decade. Or two.
This classic has been on my To Read pile for quite some time now. I actually didn't approach it with the expectation of reading a beautiful love story – and if you follow my reviews, you know that I disklike all of those cliche type love stories with happy endings where the lovers live happily ever ...
