Wuthering Heights

Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily Brontë, was asked to pay some of the publication costs.
Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting, and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

The House of Closed Doors

Small town Illinois, 1870: “My stepfather was not particularly fond of me, to begin with, and now that he’d found out about the baby, he was foaming at the mouth.”
Desperate to avoid marriage, Nell Lillington refuses to divulge the name of her child’s father and accepts her stepfather’s decision that the baby be born at a Poor Farm and discreetly adopted. Until an unused padded cell is opened and two small bodies fall out. Nell is the only resident of the Poor Farm who is convinced the unwed mother and her baby were murdered and rethinks her decision to abandon her own child to fate. But even if she manages to escape the Poor Farm with her baby she may have no safe place to run to.


Elizabeth Brown disturbs history when she starts to look for something special for her Father’s birthday. A unique store in which the gifts on sale have their own stories to tell leads her into a local workhouse and a stately home. What Elizabeth sees and hears, in replays from the shadows of the past, not only challenges her modern values but her future too. Doubting if anyone will believe her, Elizabeth tells no one about her uncanny experiences, until she meets Samuel William Jarvis, a successful bachelor. Transgressions are not always black and white, so be careful to read between the lines…sins like to remain buried.
