Overview

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.‘“I'll not listen to reason,” she said, now in full possession of her voice, which had been rather choked with sobbing. "Reason always means what someone else has got to say."’First published in serial format in a magazine, Gaskell’s Cranford is a delightfully light-hearted series of stories about early Victorian life in a country village.Following the lives of two spinster sisters, Miss Matty and Miss Deborah as they gossip about the inconsequential goings-on of the community around them, Gaskell’s best-loved work affectionately comments on the role of women in society at that time and the changing face of the Victorian world.

Tremendously popular in her lifetime, the books of the English author Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) have often been overshadowed by her contemporaries the Brontës and George Eliot. Yet the reputation of her long-neglected masterpiece Wives and Daughters continues to grow. Gaskell wrote six novels in all — of which North and South and Cranford remain two of the best known — as well as numerous short stories, novellas, and a biography of her great friend Charlotte Brontё.

I really enjoyed reading Cranford. The storyline was very easy to follow, and the characterizations were heart-warming. I felt that I was among very dear friends sipping tea by a warm fireside.
