Absolutely stunning narration by Nadia May really kept this long listen alive for me. Her timing and accents were wonderful.
It’s a character-driven Victorian novel about young woman named Molly, the daughter of a doctor in an English country town, who has to deal with changes in her life. She’s only one of the many fun characters that Gaskell brought to life.
This was the author’s final novel and was unfinished, but don’t let that stop you; the afterword wraps up the story very well. The writing contains lots of subtle humor and pokes fun at society, which reminded me of Jane Austen’s work.
