Elizabeth Gaskell’s rich weave of storytelling and social chronicle remains a landmark
North and South is a book about rebellion; it poses fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. Gaskell expertly blends individual feeling with social concern, and her heroine, Margaret Hale, is one of the most original creations of Victorian literature. —Audible.com
In our own polarised era of ideological echo chambers, it becomes a story of injustice exacerbated by poor communication. —The Guardian
As relevant now as when it was first published, Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South weaves a compelling love story into a clash between the pursuit of profit and humanitarian ideals. —Penguin Random House, Inc.
“[An] admirable story…full of character and power” —Charles Dickens
