Maryse Condé - Windward Heights

Windward Heights ePUB download
A lyrical retelling of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights. I reread Wuthering Heights before I began it, which has made it fun to compare. It has the same general storyline but author Maryse Conde inserts her own themes of economic and racial disparities to the original novel's doomed love tragedy.

Like all of Conde's books that I have read so far, this is set in the Caribbean (on the islands of Guadeloupe and Cuba, in this case) and translated from the French. One more note- I am listening to this on tape, rather than reading it, and because it is translated from the French, I am finding it fun to listen to all of the French names, places, and phrases that are left in the original language.
