The windswept moors of England, a grand rustic estate, and a love story of one woman caught between two men who love her powerfully—all inspired by Emily Brontë's beloved classic, Wuthering Heights. Solsbury Hill brings the legend of Catherine and Heathcliff, and that of their mysterious creator, into a contemporary love story that unlocks the past.
When a surprise call from a dying aunt brings twenty-something New Yorker Eleanor Abbott to the Yorkshire moors—and the family estate she is about to inherit—she finds a world beyond anything she might have expected. Having left behind an American fiancé, here Eleanor meets Meadowscarp MacLeod, a young man who challenges and changes her. Here, too, she encounters the presence of Brontë herself and discovers a family legacy they may share.
With winds powerful enough to carve stone and bend trees, the moors are another world—one where time and space work differently. Remnants of the past are just around a craggy, windswept corner. For Eleanor this means ancestors and a devastating romantic history that bears on her own life, on the history of the novel Wuthering Heights, and on the destinies of all who live in its shadow.
