About the Author

Cat Winchester was born in East Anglia. After trying many different places, she is now happily settled in Edinburgh, with her family and three dogs.

More About the Author

Cat Winchester was born in East Anglia. After her wanderlust finally abated, she settled in Edinburgh with her family, three dogs and a teacup dragon.

Despite suffering from undiagnosed dyslexia, Cat always had a desire to tell stories and indeed, credits her own and other people's tales for getting her through some of the toughest times in her life. Thanks to her dyslexia though, she never dreamed that she could become an author.

She insists that credit for her books also go to her editor and proofreader, whom she describes as 'the nicest grammar Nazi that you could ever hope to meet'.

I loved BBC series North and South and wanted a continuation. But the author in updating the relationship between Margaret and John went beyond the credible. I understand updating relationship for modern readers, but what women can even imagine a woman having a baby and a week later wanting sex with her husband! Come on even in the 21 century that is ridiculous. Also the day after she gives birth she takes a warm bath and her husband wants to watch. Author must have spent no time experiencing or researching the realities of childbirth. The storyline about the model factory village is the best part of the book.

After reading the prior reviews, I feel that I must have missed something. As a fan of both the original book and the BBC movie, I feel that this sequel fails to live up to either one. The Margaret in this book did not seem to be true to character. Her dressing down of Fanny in front of a whole house full of guests (no matter how much she deserved it) seemed inappropriate. Also, the ending sure was abrupt. I wanted to like this book but can not recommend it.

This sequel by Catherine Winchester for the novel "North and South" by Elizabeth Gaskell completely lost the flavor of the latter story. I wasn't even able to finish the book, it was so not worth reading.

That was my first and last attempt to read a sequel of a classic book. It just taught me that, as much as I long to continue reading about characters I deeply love, it's way better just to keep them in my fantasy and stick to the image I've got from the original author. The way the Thorntons' story was described just didn't match with my expectations in any aspect. I found the writing style very boring and the characters' development not believable.

I have got this book because of good reviews but it is so boring and hard to keep reading. I understand that writer tried to tell life of common people but characters have so boring life style. I forced myself to finish book because grammatically it is well written and I am not native speaker so I thought I can learn something from it and I guess did.

Honestly, I wouldn't purchase it, if it wasn't free.

I'm glad I did not read the reviews for this before I bought it, otherwise I would not have bought it. I like it a lot. Hannah and Margaret becoming friends was more like the Margaret in the movie production.

The interactions, conversations and scenarios that play out in this work are preposterous for a work set in the Industrial Revolution in England. Elizabeth Gaskell creates characters with depth the reader feels and relates to regardless of the time period; this author led wonderful characters down a sleazy road. Very disappointing -- had to put it down and won't pick it up again.

I liked this sequel although I agree there were several unrealistic parts: Margaret recovered unrealistically quickly from childbirth. I didn't understand why John left Margaret and the doctor alone so often and why he was ready to just let her go. And the part about why he thought the baby was causing eclampsia was a real stretch. But in spite of these lapses I did enjoy this version. It was nice to see Hannah and Margaret become friends. I've read several sequels that were much worse. The best version is the BBC mini-series with Danielle Denby-Ashe and the perfectly cast Richard Armitage. When in doubt watch that!
