GASKELL, E.: North and South (Unabridged)

When Margaret Hale moves with her father from the comfort of the south of England to the industrial north, she is at first repulsed by what she sees; and then when she discovers the conditions under which the workers are forced to live, she is outraged. But this throws her into direct conflict with the powerful young mill-owner, John Thornton.

Using personal passions to explore deep social divisions, North and South is a great romance—and one of Elizabeth Gaskell’s finest works
