June 2015 Book Reminder

Hopefully, as the summer heat presses in on us for the foreseeable future, we'll all find time to stay cool indoors and read through the next few books. I'm wrapping up the last 100 pages of the May book myself and really enjoying it. I'm looking forward to discussing it with all of you!

In the meantime, here's a reminder of what we have coming up next. (I'm pretty excited to read it -- it's been on my list for a loooong time!)

Wuthering Heights

Synopsis: 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.
