Summary
  • Jane Eyre: After a wretched childhood, orphaned Jane Eyre yearns for new experiences. She accepts a governess position at Thornfield Hall, where she soon finds herself falling in love with the brooding master of the house -- the passionate Edward Rochester. Jane gradually wins his heart, but they must overcome the dark secrets of the past before they can find happiness
  • Wuthering Heights: Nothing is knows of Heathcliff's mysterious past when kindly Mr. Earnshaw adopts him into his family, but his daughter Cathy sees in him a soul very much like her own. They are divided by birth, class, and Cathy's jealous brother, but nothing can break the bond between them -- not even when Cathy marries the wealthy gentleman Edgar Linton. Yet there are forces in nature that seem to be even more powerful than their love
