About 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.

One of the most under-rated authors of her time or ours. Not only a good book, full of all the twists, turns, heart-break and triumph you would expect, it is also a compelling social commentary without ever becoming too preachy or righteous. If you are a reader of classics you must read this or any of her books.

The first 7 pages are blank. didn't explore further, but if that is the same as the last 2 books, the grammer will be filled with jibberish every sentence. Badly done!

Am on page 12 of this "copy" of a well loved book & the typos are so severe they are sending me to the library to borrow an actual book. I either got this free or for a dollar but its still no good.

If you feel bad about the economy now and how it treats you, read this book about the cotton instrial age in England. What an eyeopener~
