Publisher's Summary

There is nothing like a long walk in the rain to guarantee a little privacy...unless the last person you wish to encounter happens also to be in search of solitude.

John Thornton is a man of heavy responsibilities who has many things on his mind, but the most troublesome of them all is Margaret Hale. She wants nothing to do with him, and he wishes he could feel the same. When a moment of vulnerability allows her a glimpse into his heart, she begins to see him very differently.

Is something so simple as friendship even possible after all that has passed between them? Thornton has every good reason to move on, not the least of which is the lovely Genevieve Hamilton and her wealthy father. Will Thornton act according to duty and accept an opportunity to save his mill, or will he take a chance on love, hoping to change Margaret's mind?

Superbly written with fantastic narration

This rewrite of North and South exceeded expectation. This has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. The author remained true to the original with the personalities retaining their original inner thoughts and concerns. Loved this book. The narrator however in this Audible version was genius! I have listened to other books narrated by her but she outshines even her previous works. Her characters voices were believable and very convincing. The North and South dialects were so convincing I often felt it was being presented by more than one person. I will read more from this author and most definitely this narratt!

Well done

North and South is one of my favorite books. This variation is excellent. The story occasionally falters but the love story is intense and endearing. The rough Mr. Thornton and the demure and elegant Miss Hale are larger than life characters. The story line does not follow exactly the original book but I like how they portrayed Mrs.Thornton and Mr. Hale. The narrator does a superb job with Margaret and John and their conversations, their sighs and endearments.

Wonderful and original variation

This was a lovely variation on north and south. Nicole Clarkson never disappoints. Full of new characters and new twists, it's also a refreshing change to have Mr Hale live to the end of the book.
