SYNOPSIS:  “Henry Newby, a young man despatched to Haworth Parsonage shortly after the death of Emily Bronte to retrieve a novel by Ellis Bell for his uncle, publisher of Wuthering Heights. He soon finds himself adrift in a sea of possibilities; are the pages which burn on the study fire the work of fiction which his uncle awaits, or, as he believes, do they comprise the confessions of a wicked man, a murderer who has brought destruction and misery to all he meets? Who is this Heathcliff who spills his black soul among the flames and ashes? “Can evil be passed from one generation to the next? Or is it born out of deprivation and despair?”
