This book is a book written by a woman who was ahead of her times. The heroine is such a heroic and exciting character, while at the same time kind and benevolent. The plot is fast moving and exhilarating.5/5(5).

And we are not angels, to be comforted by seeing the ends for which everything is sent.” ― Elizabeth Gaskell, quote from Wives and Daughters.After being introduced to North and South, a Victorian classic novel by Elizabeth Gaskell that I absolutely loved, I picked up Gaskell’s Wives and Daughters, hoping that it would assuage the withdrawal symptoms I was suffering from after finishing North and South and looking for another book that could inspire the same level of emotion.

Wives and Daughters was Gaskell’s last novel before.North and South Brilliant book beautifully read by Juliet Stevenson who gives life to all the characters. It is an interesting tale of class and industrial history. It never drags but keeps you fascinated until the final tantalising ending,leaving you wanting more and more of Mrs Gaskell.
