North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you are a fan of Jane Austen then you will love Elizabeth Gaskell North and South.
This is a story of two worlds colliding in all the wrong ways. From the first encounter you know things are not going to go well.
I was captivated from the start, and it was hard to pick a side. I wanted to be on Margaret side, but it was hard when she showed her naivety and lack of understand of her new home came out.
I loved how she spoke her mind and dished out just as much as was thrown at her.
The love story, I don't know what it is but I love the old style romance. There's just something about thoes minor subtle things that makes it all the more intimate.
Call me old fashion but it's that romance I like.
I highly recommend this book. As I said, if you're a Jane Austen fan, then you'll love North and South..
