This is a character-centered book and not as descriptive as most of Gaskell's other work. I found it to be on the thin side, but it is a novella and more about relationships than anything else. I liked it the least of all of Gaskell's other work.

Doesn't have the other books mentioned. But it does have some cute illustrations to help make up for that. However, be forewarned: Lots of OCR issues make it tough to read.
