Review:

"Gaskell saw the emotional and economic realities of ordinary life with a steely honesty" ( The Times)

" Ruth, North and South and Mary Barton are at least as good as any of Dickens's novels" (Sara Paretsky)

"Pah! to Dickens. Eat your heart out, Little Nell. That Elizabeth Gaskell could write a death scene to make your socks melt" ( Scotsman)

"One of the most perceptive novels of the mid-Victorian era" ( Glasgow Herald)

" North And South explores themes that still seem strikingly modern. One hundred and fifty years after it appeared, the North-South divide - and the social and economic gulf it implies - remains intact" ( Daily Mail)
