Pulling threads from the classic Wuthering Heights, Lindner (who previously took on Jane Eyre) crafts a story of mad love and moves the stage from the Yorkshire moors to New York's punk scene. Seventeen-year-old Chelsea learns through a hidden letter that her mother did not die when she was three, but ran away to New York. Chelsea does the same to try to rediscover Catherine and see if she is still alive. Chelsea finds the legendary nightclub, the Underground, where Catherine grew up. Living there is the current owner, Hence, a once-talented musician shattered by Catherine's marriage to Chelsea's father. The story is told in alternating chapters by Chelsea and, through her journal, Catherine. Although the voices don't sound terribly different, the dramatic events touched by love, loss, and longing have all the juicy elements readers will appreciate. While it's best not to look too closely at some of the details (Chelsea's father probably could have found her if he looked hard enough), this does have some of the sweep of the original and certainlyâespecially in Henceâcaptures the agony of love gone wrong.
