This book to me is like a one sided hill. I hiked and hiked and hiked watching the unfolding drama surrounding Mr. Thornton and Miss Hale only to be finally validated that she liked him then BOOM. The book is over. I had way too many questions at the end. I did think it was very different from a Jane Austin book in that you got to know some of the lower class members of society. The associations were very different from what I was used to. I just wish that Elizabeth Gaskell had answered me one question: How does Mrs. Thornton react??
