Wuthering Heights

Perhaps the most haunting and tragic love story ever written, Wuthering Heights is the tale of Heathcliff, a brooding, troubled orphan, and his doomed love for Catherine Earnshaw. His desire for her leads him to madness, however, when Catherine is made to marry a wealthy lord, sending Heathcliff on a life-long quest to avenge himself upon those who stole his only love and his life.

In this gripping chronicle of the never-ending conflict between the heart and the mind -- and the pain and passion of true romance -- Emily Brontė created an unforgettable classic saga of love, desperation, vengeance, and forgiveness.

The Secret Scripture
Add To Bookshelf
The Secret Scripture
by Sebastian Barry
Roseanne McNulty is nearing her one-hundredth birthday (although no one is quite sure of her age) and she faces an uncertain future. The Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital where she's spent the best part of her adult life is preparing for closure. Over the weeks leading up to this upheaval, she talks often with Dr Grene her psychiatrist. This relationship although guarded is trusting after so many years and intensifies and complicates as Dr Grene mourns the death of his wife.

The story that emerges through their respective journals, - of Roseanne's family in 1930s Sligo - is at once shocking and deeply beautiful. Through the haze of memory and constant retelling, Roseanne's story becomes an alternative and secre history of Ireland. This is a story exquisitely written, one of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance, and yet one marked by love,passion and hope.
