Catrina Dickinson is haunted by her past and feels caged in by life in small town Missouri. When she discovers a strange man in Stone Field where her family grows their sorghum crop, her life takes on new meaning. He has no memory of who he is or what brought him to Cat's farm, but they fall passionately in love. Meanwhile, the country is on the brink of the Civil War, and the conflict in Missouri demands that everyone take a side before the bloodbath reaches their doorstep.
A passionate and atmospheric reimagining of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, Stone Field explores how violence and vengeance perverts the human spirit, and how hatred can be transcended by love.
Wuthering Heights is a bit of a favourite of mine, so I'm keen to see what a Civil War reimagining of it will be like. In the original, the landscape and the house are almost as integral a part of the story as Heathcliff and Cathy are, so I'm really interested to see how the author has interpreted this. Plus, for a Brit, I've got a bit of an interest in the American Civil War. Plus, I'm a sucker for a ttake-your-breath-away romance.
Yeah, I think this one might tick the boxes for me.
