Margaret Hale returns home to her family in the rural south of England, after living with a wealthy aunt for 10 years, learning how to become a proper young woman.

Where does North and South rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among my top 20 percent of over 100 books.

What other book might you compare North and South to and why?

I would not wish to compare this book to others. But I would suggest The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

What about Kate Petrie’s performance did you like?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Margaret stands up to Mrs.Thornton is entertaining.
