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.

Unlike so many of shallow modern novels, Ruth offers a rich, deep, character-driven story with a powerful ending.

This is the best book I have read in a long time. It draws you in and really leads you to empathise with Ruth and her plight. It was wonderful.

A sweet sad story. It is told with quiet reserve and gentle truth. Slow moving but excellent.

But I liked it. If you like old fashion English romances were all the women faint, get very pale and get feverish that almost kill them just because they are sad, in love or something "bad" happened to them then you will love this! I enjoy but I know is just me not the book.
