Nelly Dean by Alison Case . Review

This story is based around the famous Wuthering Heights book but told through Nelly Dean , a maid , and jack of all trades for the Earnshaw family . Nelly's own father is a violent man so Nelly limits the amount of time she spends at home and her loving mother is grateful to have her out of harms way up at the" Heights" . 
Nelly is very attached to the family but she is especially fond of Hindley Earnshaw , the oldest child. Fondness turns to love between them both and with that brings more heartache then she could imagine. Life in this wilderness gets a lot worse when Hindley goes away for a long time and she is left pining after him only for his return to be one of her most traumatic experiences . 
This story about one family and their faithful servant is one of the best books I have read this year for its imagination, it's character building with Nelly over the span of her life . A truly beautiful story that dare I say I actually prefer to Wuthering Heights. Nelly is a character that will stay with you for a long time because she is so relatable and down to earth . This is going on my favourite books list!
