Publisher Description

In Emily Bronte's classic novel, Heathcliff disappears from Wuthering Heights for three years and returns a radically changed man. This is the epic story of his obsessive love and high adventure.

Heathcliff: The Lost Years is the untold story at the heart of Wuthering Heights. Haunted by memories of his first love, Catherine Earnshaw, Heathcliff embarks on a daring 18th century odyssey that takes him to Liverpool, on a slave ship to Africa, and across the treacherous Middle Passage to the slave auctions and brothels of Jamaica. In London, after more astounding adventures, he has the experience that forever changes his life.

REVIEWS:

"David Drum's Heathcliff: The Lost Years has plenty of atmosphere, conflict and obsession, presented in an historical context distinct and in an accessible way. It will appeal not only to those with some knowledge of Wuthering Heights, but also to anyone who likes a dramatic action-packed story."
-- COMPULSIVE READER, reviewed by Ruth Latta,

" Drum’s Heathcliff possesses emotional depths, compassion, and integrity as well as a ruthless streak, and the action is swift and eventful... for those who love adventure, conflict, and a palpable 18th-century setting, this is a terrific read."
-- HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW November 2019, reviewed by Viviane Crystal

"ENGAGING PROSE...PRECISE PLOTTING...VIVID DESCRIPTIONS ...INTRIGUING...MYSTICAL...Drum admirably succeeds at spinning an interesting tale, while also explaining Heathcliff's unexplored transformation in Wuthering Heights. Fans of Bronte's novel will enjoy considering these intriguing possibilities."
-- BLUE INK REVIEW August 2019
"Drum's novel seems both authentic and contemporary...a sea-going adventure...like Mutiiny on the Bounty... an impressive literary achievement and a significant contribution to Heathcliff lore."
-- SPLASH MAGAZINE September 2019

"A debut historical novel fills a mysterious three-year gap in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights. ...A diffident but ultimately entertaining exploration of a famous literary lacuna."
