5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book, April 23, 2004
This review is from: Wives and Daughters (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This book portrays the life of young Molly Gibson. Molly is a sweet girl with a good heart, but when her father remarries, Molly finds herself with a new stepsister, Cynthia. Cynthia is quite popular and flirtatious but is very troubled. Molly and Cynthia become good friends though Molly doesn't always agree with Cynthia's actions. This story shows how Molly and her sister grow from girl to woman within the gossiping little town of Hollingford, England.
I decided to read this book after seeing the Wives and Daughters presentation from ExxonMobil Masterpiece Theatre on PBS. This book is captivating and touching. It is too bad that Elizabeth Gaskell passed away before finishing the book. But though the novel is incomplete, I still very much enjoyed this book and never regretted reading it. I would recommend that you view the Masterpiece Theatre presentation of this novel because it really helped me to understand the characters better. Overall, this book is wonderful and an enjoyable read.
