Overview

North and South is set in the fictional industrial town of Milton in the North of England. Forced to leave her home in the tranquil rural south, Margaret Hale settles with her parents in Milton where she witnesses the brutal world wrought by the industrial revolution and employers and workers clashing in the first organised strikes. Sympathetic to the poor whose courage and tenacity she admires and among whom she makes friends, she clashes with John Thornton, a cotton mill manufacturer who belongs to the nouveaux riches and whose contemptuous attitude to workers Margaret despises.

Gaskell based Milton on Manchester, where she lived as the wife of a Unitarian minister.

Loved this book! It is very Pride and Prejudice-esque. It is fairly long (around 1400 pages), but such a cute story. I would have happily read another 100 pages. If you enjoy the book you should check out the BBC miniseries. Both book and movie are adorable!

I lost my heart to John Thornton while watching the BBC adaptation, but the book is even better!
