Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
This novel has been and is being read by many generations of women around the world. While the streets of old England breathe regularity, calm and serenity, the hearts of Mr. Heathcliff and Cathy are filled with tragic love and passion. The broken destinies of people, the enormity of inner torments and lives are closely intertwined with the beauty and impossibility of love. Ominousness and hopelessness breathes the very estate "Grozovoy Pass", in which no one will ever be able to find happiness and harmony.
"Gone with the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell
Scarlett O'Hara has always stood out for pride, bordering on pride, and coquetry. She could get everything she could possibly want. But the war between the North and the South forever changed her measured life in the Tara family estate. And here, in the midst of war and hunger, betrayal and loyalty, fate brought together such different, but somewhat similar Scarlett and Rhett Butler. Love and cruelty, the beauty of life and the coarseness of thoughts followed them. Will she be able to understand that what she has always longed for so passionately cannot be compared with what has always been there?
The Thorn Birds by Colin McCullough
A romantic saga about people seeking their happiness amid the sultry Australian landscapes. Just as a bird that sings the most beautiful song throws itself on a thorn of a thorn bush, Maggie Cleary and Ralph throw themselves into a maelstrom of feelings that are not destined to bind them together. Sizzling, but causing unbearable pain, love lives in their hearts from the first minute they meet. Ambition does not allow Ralph to renounce his dignity, passion does not allow Maggie. This love was doomed to torment and torment.
"Angelica" Anne and Serge Golon
The beauty of the Louvre and the baseness of human souls, the love of Angelica and Geoffrey de Peyrac and the inhumanity of envious people are closely intertwined in life. At the time of their acquaintance, they still did not understand that they would become the most desirable for each other, but every day everyone, from imaginary friends to the king of France, will strive to separate them. Conquered hearts, treachery of fate and passionate all-consuming love will accompany Angelica.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The pride of young Elizabeth Bennett, the strength of her character and fortitude were able to conquer the cold Mr. Darcy. Mutual hostility became a defense against the incipient quivering feeling. However, deceiving yourself is much more difficult than the boring society of the English hinterland. They will have to go through difficult psychological torments before they can open up to themselves and each other in romantic emotions that overwhelm their hearts.
