Description
Prizewinning writer Maryse Conde reimagines Emily Bronte's passionate novel as a tale of obsessive love between the "African" Rayze and Cathy, the mulatto daughter of the man who takes Rayze in and raises him, but whose treatment goads him into rebellious flight. Retaining the emotional power of the original, Conde shows us Caribbean society in the wake of emancipation.
