Waiting On Wednesday: Catherine by April Lindner

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.

Our WoW for this week is…

True love never dies in this modern retelling of one of literature’s most haunting star-crossed romances, Wuthering Heights.

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.

    Sadly I haven’t read “Wuthering Heights” either. Clearly my education is lacking as far as reading the classics go. But this sounds great- and who knows, maybe it’ll stir up interest in reading the book upon which it was based!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    You had me at retelling of Wuthering Height. I love that book. I’ve read it six times….three were assigned readings in my defense. Adding this to my to-read list. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Hmm, I’m not a big fan of re-tellings mostly because the ones I’ve read haven’t been so great, but this one sounds very intriguing. I love Wuthering Heights & am interested in seeing how this book will adapt it. Great WoW pick!!
