Waiting on Wednesday – Catherine

July 25, 2012

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Last year I read and thoroughly enjoyed Jane by April Lindner. This modern retelling of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre was unexpectedly brilliant. I loved Jane so much, I was inspired to re-watch all my BBC period dramas. I thought I lived in England in the 1800’s that week. So imagine my delight when I saw this book on Goodreads. April Lindner has written a modern version of Wuthering Heights. I cannot freaking wait. It’s out January 2nd 2013 – a happy new year present to myself.

Catherine – April Lindner

A forbidden romance. A modern mystery. Wuthering Heights as you’ve never seen it before.

Catherine is tired of struggling musicians befriending her just so they can get a gig at her Dad’s famous Manhattan club, The Underground. Then she meets mysterious Hence, an unbelievably passionate and talented musician on the brink of success. As their relationship grows, both are swept away in a fiery romance. But when their love is tested by a cruel whim of fate, will pride keep them apart?

Chelsea has always believed that her mom died of a sudden illness, until she finds a letter her dad has kept from her for years—a letter from her mom, Catherine, who didn’t die: She disappeared. Driven by unanswered questions, Chelsea sets out to look for her—starting with the return address on the letter: The Underground.

Told in two voices, twenty years apart, Catherine interweaves a timeless forbidden romance with a compelling modern mystery.

    I’m really interested in this, especially since I’ve never read Wuthering Heights. I love the fact that it’s told from two POVs two years apart…very exciting! It’s going to be hard to wait until Jan. for this one!
