From February 13-24, I’m hosting a celebration of North and South! Just think, two weeks brimming with Thornton and Margaret. Click here to view the latest posts.
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (Not John Jakes, his is another beast entirely) is my favorite book, hands down. The BBC mini-series, starring Daniela Denby-Ashe and Richard Armitage, is my all-time favorite book to film adaptation. Funny how that works out, isn’t it?
In case you’ve missed it, North and South is the story of Margaret Hale, a young woman in England during the 1800s. Her father has abruptly transplanted his family from the small, quaint town of Helstone, to the smoggy, industrial town of Milton. She’s overwhelmed, culture shock sets in, and she cannot seem to find where she belongs. As her mother’s health fails, she is driven to desperate measures, putting the safety of her family in danger.
The following lovely ladies will be joining me throughout the party to share rather interesting aspects on what there is to love, both serious and light. (One post made me almost spit out my tea, then I broke into hilarious laughter.)
- Nicole from WORD for Teens
- Sandy from Pirate Penguin’s Reads
