Summary
This richly textured novel of romance and class conflict explores the dichotomies between the pastoral South and industrial North during England's mid-Victorian era. Praised by Dickens as "an admirable story," this is a turbulent tale of a woman torn between her sympathy for discontented millworkers and her love for the factory's owner

Summary
Moving from the industrial riots of discontented millworkers through to the unsought passions of a middle-class woman, and from religious crises of conscience to the ethics of naval mutiny, the novel poses fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. Through the story of Margaret Hale, the middle-class southerner who moves to the northern industrial town of Milton, Gaskell skilfully explores issues of class and gender in the conflict between Margaret's ready sympathy with the workers and her growing attraction to the charismatic mill owner, John Thornton
