    When Margaret Hale moves with her father from the comfort of the south of England to the industrial north, she is at first repulsed by what she sees; and then when she discovers the conditions under which the workers are forced to live, she is outraged. But this throws her into direct conflict with the powerful young mill-owner, John Thornton. Using personal passions to explore deep social divisions, North and South is a great romance and one of Elizabeth Gaskell's finest works.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    I am an Bronte and Austen fan (amongst other classic British authors). I loved the, "Pride and Prejudice" style romance set against the backdrop of the industrial revolution. This setting adds an intensity that is not in Jane Austen's story, but It almost made the story seem more realistic or relatable.


    What does Clare Wille bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt that the narrator did an excellent job of portraying the characters including the voice changes and the accents used. I like to listen to audiobooks at night. The narrator's voice is pleasant to listen to; not boring and not grating.
