I was drawn into the romance and essence of this book from page one. The story intrigued me with the combination of suspense and romance to the story. The writing is very descriptive and an observing narrative of detail not necessary at times to the story. I did keep having to remind myself that it is in fact set in the modern day as there is a slightly old fashioned feel to the story like it could be set years before, just like Heathcliff and Cathy this story did move me to wuthering heights.
