Overview

A young girl called Maggie, loves her overbearing brother, despite his occasional bullying. But will she give up the man she loves at her brother's insistence? Yes, the plot does have similarities with George Eliot's 'The Mill on the Floss' and the heroines share the same name. Both have a similar climactic scene. Eliot's novel dates from 1860, so Gaskell's book came first. Despite the plot similarities, the treatment of the theme is rather different.

Meet the Author

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.
