I didn't get this book for the longest time because of all the negative reviews about violence, etc. I'm so glad I finally got it! One of my favorites!

This is the story of Margaret Hale, a young English woman who accompanies her family's move from rural southern England to the industrial north. It proves to be a difficult change, with all the attendant social conflicts and cultural misunderstandings consequent to such situations. It is a study in contrasts. Mrs. Gaskell created one of the Victorian era's greatest heroines in Margaret Hale, a young lady of passionate intensity.

I almost didn't get this version for the complaints about the reader. I found he was incredibly good and felt like he differentiated speakers very adeptly. I cannot imagine a better book or a better reader...I finished it in a week or so because I couldn't "put it down". LOVE IT! Better than the BBC movie, although it's worth seeing too.
