In regards to the edition, I suggest not reading Suzanne Lewis's introduction or explanatory notes unless you're prepared for spoilers or the note is about a French word, 'cause Lewis is expert at the spoilers and never offers spoiler alerts. Otherwise this was a perfectly acceptable book of stories. I don't have any particular complaints about them, but neither do I feel like raving about how amazing any of them were. I may read other Gaskell works, shall I come upon them, but I'm not sure I'll seek them out. I did, however, find myself wanting to read them when I was, say, practicing, doing homework, or in class; but the urge was quite easily ignored if I happened to be at the end of a chapter/section or story.
