Susan M Wyler has done a spectacular job incorporating the storyline of Wuthering Heights into this modern version. She brings back the Bronte sisters as ancestors of Eleanor Abbott on the windswept moors of England. So how does a modern 20 year old New Yorker with a brilliant new company that has finally started to get noticed end up in England at a house that resembles Wuthering Heights?
Well, a call from her Aunt's friend telling her that her Aunt is dying and really wants to see her combined with a boyfriend she just caught with someone else----off she goes. She finds out that this house and all the land will be hers------whether she lives there or not. Of course if you remember Wuthering Heights you know she is going to meet another guy there. She is also going to learn some truths about her parents and her heritage.
I can not give you much more without giving everything away-and what fun is that? I do suggest you read this book it is well worth the time!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
"Susan Wyler's contemporary take on a classic love story is utterly beguiling. Solsbury Hill is a gorgeously well-written tale of a fraught love affair that takes you from New York to the wild gothic setting of the Yorkshire moors."—Fiona Neill, author of Slummy Mummy and What the Nanny Saw
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 Bronte’s beloved classic, Wuthering Heights. Solsbury Hill brings the legend of Catherine and Heathcliff, and that of their mysterious creator herself, 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 fiance, here Eleanor meets Meadowscarp MacLeod—a young man who challenges and changes her. Here too she encounters the presence of Bronte herself and discovers a family legacy they may share.
With winds powerful enough to carve stone and bend trees, the moors are another world where time and space work differently. Remanants 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.
