Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell was an English novelist, biographer, and short story writer

Molly Gibson is the spirited, loyal daughter of the local doctor

Molly's life is thrown off course by the arrival of her vain, shallow and selfish stepmother

Set in the watchful society of Hollingford, this is a warm tale of love and longing

Soon the girls become close, and Molly finds herself cajoled into becoming a go-between in Cynthia's love affairs.

Their peaceful close-knit home is turned upside down when Molly's father decides to remarry

There is some solace in the shape of her new stepsister Cynthia, who is beautiful, sophisticated and irresistible to every man she meets

Wives and Daughters is far more than a nostalgic evocation of village life it offers an ironic critique of mid-Victorian society
