I bought the Penguin edition when I was in my 20s read a page or two put it down and didn't pick it up again The book sat on my shelf for years For all I know it could be there still However after university I went right off Victorian literature and it's only been in the last twelve months or so that I've felt the desire to tackle it again And now I've fallen in love with Elizabeth Gaskell's writing In brief the novel is set in the English Midlands in the 1830s and focuses on Molly Gibson who lives in a small town with her widowed father the local medical practitioner Concerned to acuire an appropriate chaperone and guide for his teenage daughter Mr Gibson re marries the vain self absorbed and manipulative Hyacinth Kirkpatrick who has a teenage daughter of her own Cynthia The st
