Emily Brontë, born 203 years ago tomorrow, famously published only one novel: Wuthering Heights.
But scholars have reason to believe that Brontë was at work on her second novel at the time of her tragically young death.
What happened to that manuscript, though, is subject to much more debate than the fact that it existed.
