'Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë'
Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on the bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. With the narration of Nelly Dean, he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before; of the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and her betrayal of him. As Heathcliff's bitterness and vengeance is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past.
'Little Women - Louisa M. Alcott'
This novel is a robust evocation of family life whose appeal transcends boundaries of time and age, making it as popular with adults as it is with younger readers.
'Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen'
Jane Austen's best-loved novel is a story about the inaccuracy of first impressions, about the power of reason, and above all about the strange dynamics of human relationships and emotions. Here, where Hugh Thomson's delightful period illustrations were originally black-and-white, they have been sensitively coloured by Barbara Frith.
'Persuasion - Jane Austen'
This book tells the story of Anne Elliot, a woman who - at twenty-seven - is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years ago, she was persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. When Anne and Frederick meet again, he has acquired both, but still feels the sting of her rejection.
All books are hardcover with dust jacket.
