Please use this thread for first impressions (non-spoilers), background and general information.

Piyangie | 621 comments I read it last year and absolutely loved it. It is a great work. I hope the group will enjoy the read.


WhatIReallyRead | 479 comments I'd love to join the group read of this, since it's on my TBR and I really liked other book by this author.
But I'm still in the middle of a 1000+ page book, and I don't know if I'll be able to go for this one too, since it's pretty long as well... Will see.

Rosemarie | 1529 comments I am going to be reading this later in the month.

No worries Anna! Threads will be open if and when you decide to read it. ☺️

I just hope that the members who voted for the book will read it and discuss Piyangie!! 😏

Danada I've got it all queued up and am eager to start! I love Elizabeth Gaskell. :)

Thanks Danada for the heads up! I'm glad! 😁

Tracey (traceyrb) The book was not completed by the time Gaskell died and its ending was supplied by Frederick Greenwood

I think the ending is in keeping with what I know of Gaskell's works but would be interested in what others think.

Tracey (traceyrb) I can get the book as an audiobook so I will 'read' it again this month and join in the discussion.

Great to hear Rosemarie! More of an incentive for me to pick it up and read now! 😊
