Rate this:
Enigmatic, intelligent, and fiercely independent, Emily Bront#65533; refuses to bow to the conventions of her day: she is distrustful of marriage, prefers freedom above all else, and walks alone at night on the moors above the isolated rural village of Haworth. But Emily's life, along with the rest of the Bront#65533; family, is turned upside down with the arrival of an idealistic clergyman named William Weightman. Weightman champions poor mill workers' rights, mingles with radical labor agitators, and captivates Haworth--and the Bront#65533;s especially--with his energy and charm. An improbable friendship between Weightman and Emily develops into a fiery but unconsummated love affair--and when tragedy strikes, the relationship continues, like the love story at the heart of Wuthering Heights, beyond the grave.Denise Giardina, whose fiction has been described as "brilliant. . . heart-wrenching, tough and tender" (Los Angeles Times Book Review), writes a stirring story about faith, passion, longing, and romantic solitude.
