really liked it
Read in April, 2012

After watching "North and South" I wanted more Gaskell and picked this up. It's a bit heavy-handed on the class issues, but I loved Mary and the melodrama. Mary is not a wealthy character, as are many from novels of this era, making her struggles seem to have higher stakes.

Rose I know what you mean about watching North and South and wanting more. I watched it twice. Try the miniseries "Cranford."
