Svindlande höjder by Emily Brontë( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in Swedish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hittebarnet Heathcliff kommer som liten till familjen Earnshaw på Wuthering Heights. Pojken växer upp olycklig och svåråtkomlig, älskad av sin fosterfar och fostersystern Catherine men avskydd av sin fosterbror. När fosterfadern dör försvåras Heathcliffs liv och den enda som ännu älskar honom är hans tvillingsjäl Catherine. Men ödet och missförstånden ska skilja dem åt. Catherine gifter sig med en barndomsvän och hämnden blir Heathcliffs enda mål. Tillbaka i sin uppväxttrakt i ett storslaget Yorkshire återser han Catherine och mellan dem finns allting kvar, samtidigt som allt är för sent. En insikt som för evigt förmörkar Heathcliffs värld. Den passionerade och uppslitande kärlekshistorien mellan Heathcliff och Catherine hör till den engelska litteraturens mest välkända och har gjort Svindlande höjder till en av de riktigt stora klassikerna.

What chance has a nice middle-class woman got against a determined conman? 47-year-old widow Julia is about to remarry, much to the delight and relief of her daughters.
