Editorial Reviews

Set amid the industrial-age squalor of Northern England, Elizabeth Gaskell’s classic romantic drama, North and South, reveals the massive chasm that separates the rich and poor of the Victorian era. The story follows well-to-do Margaret Hale, who relocates from the opulent tranquility of the south country to the bustling mill town of Milton-Northern. Aghast at the conditions of the working poor, Margaret becomes increasingly entangled in town politics, leading to an unlikely romance with a local mill owner. Veteran voiceover artist Clare Wille brings elocutory eloquence to Margaret’s quest. Wille effortlessly flits between the varied concerns of Gaskell’s characters, capturing working-class worry, aristocratic outrage, and rapturous romance in the process.

Publisher's Summary

When Margaret Hale moves with her parents 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.
