North and South, by Elizabeth Gaskell (March 7, 2013) Nothing to do with the American civil war, by the way. This is an English novel originally written for Charles Dickens' magazine, "Household Words." It has something of Dickens' social conscious but a love story reminiscent of "Pride and Prejudice."
