Wives and Daughters

"Eh, miss, but that be a rare young lady! She do have such pretty coaxing ways ..."



Seventeen-year-old Molly Gibson worships her widowed father. But when he decides to remarry, Molly's life is thrown off course by the arrival of her vain, shallow and selfish stepmother. There is some solace in the shape of her new stepsister Cynthia, who is beautiful, sophisticated and irresistible to every man she meets. Soon the girls become close, and Molly finds herself cajoled into becoming a go-between in Cynthia's love affairs. But in doing so, Molly risks ruining her reputation in the gossiping village of Hollingford - and jeopardizing everything with the man she is secretly in love with.

PLOT: Set in English society before the 1832 Reform Bill, Wives and Daughters centres on the story of youthful Molly Gibson, brought up from childhood by her father. When he remarries, a new step-sister enters Molly's quiet life – loveable, but worldly and troubling, Cynthia. The narrative traces the development of the two girls into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford. REVIEW: I read this book some time ago, and realised I never reviewed it! Wives and Daughters is Elizabeth Gaskell´s last book, which is a known fact as the last few chapters were never written. Besides this little inconvenience this books is a piece of genius. I think her style of writing really reached it´s hight, it was a pleasure reading that book! While you are on your way grab a copy of "North and South" as well!
