North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Margaret Hale is suddenly uprooted from her country home in southern England and moves to an industrial town with her father. Margaret is highly prejudiced against the industrial revolution and all involved in it.
Mr. Thornton is a conscientious factory owner who has to deal with violent union leaders and Margaret’s criticisms. Will Margaret learn to look over her prejudices? Will Thornton be able to make Margaret understand his position?
This is Gaskell’s best work that unearths a once in a lifetime romance to pages.
