Picking up immediately where Mrs Gaskell drew to a halt - 'that woman!' - Catherine Winchester follows John Thornton and Margaret Hale into marriage, business expansion, and family life over the course of five or so years. In her foreword - disclaimer - the author debates whether or not to imitate Gaskell or lapse into a more modern style, and decides on a 'hybrid'. The dialogue is therefore hopelessly modern, along with the behaviour of the characters, which sits ill with the original text but works on the whole. 'The morals of the day just weren't going to cut it for a modern audience', Miss Winchester claims, backing up her theory with the erroneous statement that John and Margaret never even share a kiss (they do, but the very Victorian Mrs Gaskell refers to the clinch as 'delicious silence'). So instead of veiled gestures and almost crippling erotic tension, the 'modern audience' gets a lot of bedroom scenes and public displays of affection. I'm not complaining - I'm perfectly sure that Mr and Mrs Thornton would be totally smitten, albeit carefully and discreetly - but I did rather miss the rather more subtle romance of the original.Read more ›
