Book Overview

A collection of comic sketches serialized in Charles Dickens's journal Household Words, these stories look to sympathetically portray changing small-town customs and values. [2] Harkening back to memories of her childhood in the small Cheshire town of Knutsford, Cranford is an attempt to portray an affectionate picture of a class and customs already becoming anachronisms. The book is narrated by Mary Smith, a woman who frequently visits the town and, when away, remains abreast of events through correspondence with the other characters.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the entitled book by Miss Elizabeth C. Gaskell. As I had already watched the 2007 mini series and already read My Lady Ludlow it was a great treat to me to compare the interpretation of the mini series to both novels. Next up. Confessions of a country doctor or something as such by Miss Gaskell.
