    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.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The recording is disappointing. I found it to be tinny with a hollow ring to it and occassionally Ms. Wille speaks so softly that it's hard to hear and understand. I find myself turning it up and down and rewinding to catch what I missed. She does a good job with the characters and the variety of accents. It's too bad the recording isn't better


    Any additional comments?

    Other than the performance issues I mentioned, I liked the book. After watching a BBC production I was curious to read the book. It did not disappoint.
