540p paperback, spine a little creased, very goodReview:
Elizabeth Gaskell's novels explore the social divisions of the 19th century with a vivacity that resonates in the Britain of today when they are widening again. Which isn't to say that they are worthy and consequently dull. No, Gaskell's books are rich with romance and peopled by characters the listener truly feels for. North and South takes Margaret Hale, daughter of a C of E vicar, from the drawing rooms of London and the exquisite beauty of the New Forest to the grim northern industrial town of Milton where, appalled by the conditions his workers live and work in, she finds herself in conflict with mill owner John Thornton. Excellent reading by Claire Wille. --Kati Nicholl,The Daily Express
