Customer Reviews

It is very well written.
Amazon Customer
The grammar errors in the text (such as quote marks in the wrong place) were annoying but could have been overlooked if the content was better written.

Many of the authors of these continuation stories feel it's necessary to have pretty explicit sex scenes.

This book started out well, giving a reader who is unfamiliar with Gaskell's North and South, a good idea of what had already transpired. Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't mind that Margaret married another, it added to Thornton's despair. However, you just know she has to be widowed for their story to continue. The other option would be divorce which at that time would be unheard of/disgraceful if not for society, than certainly for the righteous Margaret and proud John to experience

CAUTION!!! Parents with young ladies who enjoy books such as Austen's and Gaskell's be advised! Many of the authors of these continuation stories feel it's necessary to have pretty explicit sex scenes. This makes me sad because when I was younger and became a fan of this time period, I would have loved to be able to get more of my favorite books! Please check these books out before you let your kiddos read them!

I am an avid reader and a huge fan of the victorian period. When Wynyard decided to have these beloved characters throw propriety completely out the window was when I realized just what an amateur author she is. It's too bad, really. The story could have been great if it were not for the many discrepencies. :-/

Sorry, but I did not like this sequel to North & South although I had high hopes and it started out okay.

***Spolier Alert*** It was ruined for me when Margaret married someone else first. That is a big no no when writing romance. The Hero and Heroine do not become intimate with others once they meet. That is a romance novel formula. Maybe some people do not consider N&S primarily a romance story but I do.

Someone else already mentioned the bad formatting, which I also had in the version that I received. Lots of run on sentences with no spaces at all between words.

Sorry for the less then stellar review, but I had to be honest.

And you can already see the but coming, can't you? An odd take on the love story between "North and South"s John Thornton and Margaret Hale. Some of it passes muster, but the sexual content is way over the top for the time period it portrays and the timeline given for their romance fluctuates way too much. Still, so far this is the best of Loyal Wynyard's novels I've read (haven't gotten to all of them yet). Maybe I'm more of a "North and South" purist than I suspected, but this book didn't do it for me.

I really enjoyed this book. It is very well written. The characterization of John and Margaret was very believable. They are portrayed as two very passionate people that have faced and overcome very difficult circumstances and found their way to love. I'm glad that there is fan fiction being written for North and South as it is such a tremendous story. The 2004 BBC television series was excellent and I view this book as a natural spinoff from that show. I am looking forward to seeing more books, i.e., sequels, variations, what ifs, about this and other fine pieces of literature.

In this sequel, John and Margaret are completely different people. They say and do things the characters in the original North and South would never say or do. **SPOILER ALERT** Does the author really think the John Thornton of the original would take Margaret's hand and put it on the bulge in his lap to prove she was desirable? I kept reading hoping this was just one mistaken scene. I gave up after the strip tease. And that was after the skipping over a lot of the long speeches, not just between Margaret and John but Higgins also. The grammar errors in the text (such as quote marks in the wrong place) were annoying but could have been overlooked if the content was better written. I'm sorry for the bad review, but this was extremely disappointing.

This was an awesome story. I couldn't put it down. It was engaging and I loved it. Even though it was a different love story of the classic characters of Margaret and John. It was engaging and well written. It pulled in many facts from the original story which was nice to see and still kept all the characters I loved in North and South.

Certainly not written in same vein as original story. I know "sex sells" so that is what this was about.
