My heart aches that this story is over. I loved it.

An interesting telling of the struggles of life in the 1800s between the simple agrarian life of southern England and the fast-paced industrialization of northern England. The characters embody the most noble of traits, and I didn't want it to end. This is the kind of literature that inspires me to be more educated, forgiving, and kind. I would recommend this book to everyone.
