When Margaret Hale moves with her father 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.

This is a thoroughly wonderful novel. Margaret Hale is one of the great woman characters in fiction. It's powerful and moving and deeply involving. The narration is very capable as well, with multiple English accents well portrayed (to my American ear.)

Elizabeth Gaskell does not disappoint. Excellent! The narrator's excellent. Also I really felt as if I were there in London, Milton, and Halton with real people and events. I believe I understand the beginning of labor relations from both the Master and the workers point of view to a greater degree!
