    Molly Gibson lost her mother when she was a child. Any stepmother would have been a shock, but the new Mrs Gibson is a self-absorbed, silly little widow, and Molly's unhappiness is compounded by the realisation that her father has come to regret his second marriage.

    Jo says: "Superb! Story and Narration A++"
    "The very best of Gaskell"
    Overall

    I have listened to "Wives and Daughters" twice and it was even better on second listen. All the characters are well drawn, but Cynthia steals the show; busily breaking hearts while her selfishly obtuse mother works little miseries upon all who are nearest and dearest.
    This is one of Mrs. Gaskell's most humorous books with a flavor of Jane Austen.
    The reader does full justice to "Wives and Daughters" and brings all the characters to life.
