Worzel Gummidge is a much-loved and fondly-remembered character who is about to enjoy a new lease of life! This new edition of the classic story by Barbara Euphan Todd features a fun and colourful new cover together with energetic inside illustrations and is being published just in time for Worzel's return to our TV screens this Christmas.
He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. Catherine and Heathcliff's, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. Catherine's brother Hindley's hatred and humiliation of Heathcliff leads to tragedy when Catherine marries another and Heathcliff returns wealthy to enact his revenge on who wronged him.
A gripping story of love and revenge, set in the dramatic backdrop of the Yorkshire moors in the 19th century. Heathcliff is brought up by the Earnshaw family, but bullied and humiliated by Catherine Earnshaw's brother. He leaves, wrongly believing his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, and returns years later, a wealthy man, to exact revenge.
Heathcliff, an orphan, is raised by Mr Earnshaw as one of his own children. Hindley despises him but wild Cathy becomes his constant companion, and he falls deeply in love with her. When she will not marry him, Heathcliff's terrible vengeance ruins them all - but still his and Cathy's love will not die.
A lost classic that is ripe for rediscovery. This moving coming-of-age story, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1939, has been out of print for decades. It is an incredible novel that will be cherished by all ages.
