Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights (1847), a tale of love and death on the moors of Yorkshire, has been long considered one of the finest novels in the gothic tradition.

Charlotte Brontë, Emily's sister, earned accolades for Jane Eyre (1847). Her novel focuses on a governess who comes to live in an estate owned by the mysterious Mr. Rochester.

Du Maurier's collection, Not After Midnight, and Other Stories (1971), republished in America as Don't Look Now (1971) includes one of her most successful stories. "Don't Look Now" traces a young couple's struggle to cope with the death of their daughter.
