Publisher's Summary

Against a background of industrial unrest, misery, suspicion, jealousy, and the deaths of family and dear friends, the star-crossed love between mill owner John Thornton and the cultivated Margaret Hale is put to the test.


What the Critics Say

"[Gaskell] was a keen observer of human behaviour and speech, among both industrial workers in Manchester and farming and country-town communities, and a careful researcher of the background and technicalities of her novels." (The Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature)

Very poor audio quality

I love the book and I love the BBC series but this audiobook is NOT worth its price ! Very, very poor sound quality. And Flo Gibson's narration is not worth mentioning. Very disappointing !
