Review: Solsbury Hill by Susan M. Wyler

Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Why I chose this book:
This had my Heathcliff x Catherine heart fluttering at the idea of a retelling. Back in January, I knew I wanted to have a copy of this to snuggle up to with a warm cup of tea and a thunder storm outside. I have too much love for Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights not to read this book. I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. 


 Solsbury Hill by Susan M. Wyler
Publisher: Riverhead Trade
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Format: eARC
Genre: Women's Fiction, Adult, Contemporary/Realistic Fiction, Romance
Buy: B&N | Indiebound | Amazon
Synopsis:
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.
