Born in 1818 (d. 1848): the author of the indelible novel Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë ─ Said her novelist sister Charlotte of her, “My sister Emily loved the moors. Flowers brighter than the rose bloomed in the blackest of the heath for her; out of a sullen hollow in a livid hillside her mind could make an Eden. She found in the bleak solitude many and dear delights; and not the least and best-loved was – liberty.”
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I would highly recommend this one, but cannot say (as many others do) that this is one I could read over and over again. The story and the characters are incredibly interesting, but Catherine and Heathcliff really are horrible people.
