MARY BARTON is the first novel published by Elizabeth Gaskell. Set in Manchester in the mid-19th century, the novel follows the lives of several working-class British families and the trials and tribulations they face at the lower end of the socio-economic scale.

Set during the Napoleonic Era, CRANFORD is the story of the mostly female inhabitants, and their absurdities, of a sleepy English village.

RUTH is a sensitive portrayal of relationships within small towns and an exploration of seduction and illegitimacy within a small Dissenting community where tolerance and rigid morality clash.

NORTH AND SOUTH is a study in contrasts between rural southern England and industrial northern England. The heroine is a parson's daughter whose religious doubts have forced him to resign his Hampshire office in the rural South and to move his family to an industrial manufacturing town in Darkshire, the fictional Milton.

Set during the early years of the Napoleonic Era, SYLVIA'S LOVERS follows the life and loves of young Sylvia Robson, who marries her dull cousin Philip after she learns her first love, Charlie, has been killed. When Charlie unexpectedly returns, Sylvia faces new trials and tribulations.

WIVES AND DAUGHTERS follows the story of Molly Gibson, the dutiful daughter of a widowed doctor, living in a provincial English town of the 1830s.

    The table of contents does not work.  I wanted to read Cranford,

    The table of contents does not work.  I wanted to read Cranford, but could not select it in the table of contents.  The table of contents does not give you page numbers, so you cannot go there by page. This is not too much to ask for. I read the first 2, Mary Barton, a good read, but very preachy and finally ,Cranford, a lovely book that I enjoyed very much.
