Product Description

Product Description

A great love reborn.... When Emily Bronte’s Classic Wuthering Heights ended Heathcliffe had just died still grieving over the death of his love Catherine Linton, nee Earnshaw. In this imaginative sequel Hareton Earnshaw (Catherine’s nephew) and Cathy Linton (Catherine’s daughter and namesake) share their predecessors’ passion for each other. However is it possible for Catherine’s daughter to have remained untouched by her mothers wild and tempestuous nature? Hareton and Cathy marry, but their home is soon disturbed by the startling appearance of Heathcliffe’s son Jack – a dark secret all these years. Jack has the same fierce attractiveness of his father – and he will use it. It seems that the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange are fated to relive the love and torment of their forebears, as old passions and hostilities resurface in a narrative that continues one of the world’s greatest love stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic story! 24 Mar 2012
By ElaineG TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have just had a Wuthering Heights marathon - having downloaded this on to the kindle a few weeks ago, I came to read it this week but realised that although I had seen the movie versions, I couldnt actually remember reading Wuthering Heights itself, so downloaded it and settled in for a very long read. Moving on ... the original Wuthering Heights read and loved and time to move on to Return to Wuthering Heights ... and I have to say Nicola Thorne has achieved something wonderful here and very brave, it must have taken a lot of sweat to create a valid follow on to what is one of the all time classics. She has moved the story on in a believable way, creating characters who can be loved (even if they are not very nice people a lot of the time) and put them in scenarios that would not have been out of place in the original. Reading both books one after the other, as I did, I wasnt even aware of the seam between the two and just thoroughly enjoyed a cracking good read. To sum up, a fantastic story which has stayed true to the characters and feel of the original Wuthering Heights and Nicola Thorne can be proud of herself for creating a worthy follow up to one of the all time classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumph 2 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I expect that a lot of readers of Return to Wuthering Heights will share my view that it feels as though you never left it... Nicola Thorne creates a new story with enough of the spirit and style of the original to make it a thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable read.

Nowadays the Heathcliff clan would probably be stars of The Jeremy Kyle Show, queuing up for their DNA test results, or facing trial for their animal brutality. But in the times covered by the book their behaviour was all too real and prevalent. The portrayal of the miserable lot of the women in the novel is a reminder of how unfair and unkind the world used to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent continuation of the original novel 22 July 2012
By chrism
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the original version just before reading this as it is years since I read it and I wanted to continue reading from the Emily Bronte's beginning to the new 'Nicola Thorne' end. I thought Nicola Thorne did a brilliant job in continuing the story, once I got reading (there is an introduction before the story starts) I could not put it down. Would thoroughly recommend. (would make a good film)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like the original, but a good read 24 Jun 2014
By V. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In the foreword of my copy, Thorne states that she was wary of doing a sequel to Wuthering Heights because of the original's psychological themes. The disturbing violation of boundaries and identity just couldn't be replicated, at least not by her. Therefore she decided to focus on the repercussions on the next generation, making it more a story of an ongoing blood feud.

I believe she made the right call, but it makes it difficult to rate this novel. As a sequel to Wuthering Heights, it's lacklustre. As a novel in its own right, it's quite good. I enjoyed watching the adventures of the next few generations and seeing how Heathcliffe's shadow touched them. I didn't care for how Hareton was developed - he carried no trace of the original wild, angry boy that was so compelling in the original - but the other original characters were decently handled. Thorne's new characters are interesting enough, with the possible exception of Hareton's daughter who was rather annoyingly perfect.

My main complaint would be that the novel doesn't seem to go anywhere or reach any sort of climax - it just sort of ended. Other than that, it was an enjoyable read so long as you don't go in expecting the same experience as the original. I'm giving it four stars under it's own merit, but if I was judging it as a sequel it would be three.

4.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE ORIGINAL 17 Dec 2013
By Teresa Ramseur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Then read this. It won't disappoint, if you can overlook some typos, of which there are quite a few. In terms of story, it kept me enthralled until the end. I won't leave any spoilers here, as far as plot, but as I said in the title of my review, if you ever wondered what happened after the ending of the original novel, read this. It was a good book typos and misspellings aside.
