I made a mistake in packing our books first…but these are still lying around as my ‘next books to read’ pile.
Cranford is a book I picked up for $5 after stumbling upon the DVD series a few months ago. The series was absolutely wonderful, I do LOVE that era! The book should be lovely too 🙂
Synopsis for Cranford:
“Cranford” is the best known and most charming of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novels. It is a comic portrait of an early Victorian country village and its genteel inhabitants, mostly women, whose social attitudes remain firmly unchanging against the modernising world, and whose domestic details dominate conversation. Gaskell describes the uneventful lives of Cranford’s inhabitants in this witty and poignant classic which deserves to be read and re-read.
