1997 Novel by Alice Hoffman. Unrelated to the execrable motion picture of the same name. Loosely based on the seminal 19th century novel, Wuthering Heights, Here on Earth tells the story of March Murray who returns to the small Massachusetts town she was raised in to attend the funeral of Judith Dale, the housekeeper who largely raised her. March is forced to confront the world of her past, including Hollis, a boy she once loved, now a twisted and embittered man she cannot keep away from.

Elegant and lyrical, Hoffman expertly combines a portrayal of small-town life, the theme of a consuming love, believable characterizations and a touch of the magical.
