    Set in English society before the 1832 Reform Bill, Wives and Daughters centers on the story of youthful Molly Gibson, brought up from childhood by her father. When he remarries, a new stepsister enters Molly's quiet life, the loveable, but worldly and troubling, Cynthia. The narrative traces the development of the two girls into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford.

    Sandra says: "It's not about the ending!"
    "Great timeless story!"

    What did you love best about Wives and Daughters?

    I loved the characters' complexity.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gaskell kept my interest by interweaving so many different scenes and personalities.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Although I did not admire her personality, my favorite scenes involved Mrs. Gibson portraying herself as one person while her words and actions showed her to be something completely different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but impossible at 25 hours. I did not want the story to end.


    Any additional comments?

    This book makes me want to go back to reading 19th century fiction.
