Everything you'd expect from a period drama.,

This review is from: Wives and Daughters (Wordsworth Classics) (Paperback)
When presented with this book one Christmas i never thought i would enjoy it as much as i have. Wives and Daughters is one of those books that no matter how hard you try you just can't stop reading, as soon as i put it down i found myself picking it up again wanting to know what would happen next. There are so many points in the book where you will find your self either smiling with happiness or crying due to sad farewells to some of the best loved characters. However by the end of the book you will have forgotten all the problems endured by characters along the way and you'll find yourself once again smiling as, just like in all the best books, when at the last moment just as everything seems to be going wrong something happens that makes it an almost entirely happy ending and one where you will find yourself by the end wishing you were in the position of 'little Molly Gibson.'
