How…just how could Elizabeth Gaskell create such an achingly beautiful character!
Ladies…if you still haven’t read North and South, you should…no, you really, really should. You will enjoy every bit of it. You know what’s even better? the BBC miniseries. It’s amazing…most beautiful period drama I ever watched…it’s a good idea to watch it, I promise.
“He shrank from hearing Margaret’s very name mentioned; he, while he blamed her–while he was jealous of her–while he renounced her–he loved her sorely, in spite of himself.”
