This is an auction for HEATHCLIFF: THE RETURN TO WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Lin Haire-Sergeant.

"Returning home from Brussels, Charlotte Bronte shares a train compartment with Mr. Lockwood and spends the night reading a letter from Heathcliff to Cathy explaining his absence. Nelly Dean had been charged with delivering the letter, but she chose instead to keep it hidden for 60 years; then she seeks Lockwood's assurance that she had done the right thing. In the letter, Heathcliff describes his experiences as the protege of Mr. Are of Thornfield. While the conclusion belies Emily Bronte's vision of Cathy and Heathcliff, the story is suspenseful and well told. Those familiar with the Brontes' work will be fascinated with Haire-Sargeant's conception; others will find that the story stands on its own. Necessary for Bronte collections and also recommended for fiction collections."
- Booklist (US)

"Embroidering the classics is a venerable literary tradition that sometimes goes awry. Here, however, Haire-Sargeant, a professor of 19th-century literature at the University of Massachusetts, conjures the dark, brooding air of Wuthering Heights with striking authenticity. This refreshingly well-spun fantasy re-creates Heathcliff's three lost years, between the time he fled Yorkshire to seek his fortune to his return to claim Catherine Earnshaw. Some Bronte devotees may be appalled at Haire-Sargeant's temerity, but most readers will enjoy this nicely executed tale."
