Wuthering Heights My favorite love story

One day Cathy & Hindley's father brought home an orphaned child, Heathcliff, and treated him as his own.

Cathy and Heathcliff got along famously, but Hindley was very jealous and hated him. When their dad passed away, Hindley made Heathcliff move to the barn and be a stable boy to the family

Cathy loved Heathcliff, but was torn by that love and being a 'fine lady'. She decided she wanted more than Heathcliff could offer and asked him to go away and come back rich.

So Heathcliff sailed the seas and makes his fortune.

Cathy married her neighbor, Edgar Linton and became rich and in the middle of the social scene.

But her happiness is short-lived as Heathcliff returns a rich man, wondering why Cathy didn't wait for him. Heathcliff becomes bitter and buys Wuthering Heights, the family home, by paying off Cathy's alcoholic brother's gambling debts.

To make Cathy hurt even more, Heathcliff marries Edgar's sister. Cathy's heart breaks and she gets sick. He goes to her and they declare their love for each other. He prays over her after she dies, "Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living; you said I killed you - haunt me, then! The murdered DO haunt their murderers, I believe. I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I can not live without my life! I can not live without my soul!'

Heathcliff lives a sad, bitter life. Years later he hears that someone saw Catherine walking in the Moors, where they used to spend all their time. Heathcliff goes there and dies. Cathy and Heathcliff are finally together, beginning to live.
