Wives and daughters

by Elizabeth Gaskell

I love all Elizabeth Gaskell's books but this is my absolute favourite. The characters are brilliantly portrayed and its the perfect mix of humour, romance and a brilliantly captivating story. Well worth a re-read!!

North and South is another underrated novel by this wonderful author. Even if you've seen the TV Drama, you should read it.
Elizabeth Gaskell is my favourite Victorian author and I am also watching Cranford. Mary Barton is another excellent read of hers.
I am watching Cranford at the moment on television and think it is brilliant so I have started to read Mrs Gaskells books. I agree and love this book. I cannot wait to read more by the same lady. I have regained my enjoyment of this type of classic novel.
