Even if the plot is improbable at times, the story is entertaining and the gallery of characters presented is memorable. The description of an industrial city in the 19th century is deeply moving. All in all, a great achievement. A must read.
I found myself unable to put this down and I was literally holding my breath whilst reading the final chapters!
Mary is a feisty, young girl, who hasn't realised that her consequences have actions and that the people she loves may not be who she thought, or rather hoped, they were.
The storyline is rather dark as it is focused around a murder, but it deals with the subject matter fantastically and has lighter, heart-lifting moments.
Elizabeth Gaskell is excellent at creating a beautiful, but hard-hitting romantic story. I think she is a fantastic writer and would thoroughly recommend 'Wives and Daughters' and 'North and South'.
