The Penguin English Library Edition of Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell

"Eh, miss, but that be a rare young lady! She do have such pretty coaxing ways ..."

Seventeen-year-old Molly Gibson worships her widowed father. But when he decides to remarry, Molly's life is thrown off course by the arrival of her vain, shallow and selfish stepmother. There is some solace in the shape of her new stepsister Cynthia, who is beautiful, sophisticated and irresistible to every man she meets. Soon the girls become close, and Molly finds herself cajoled into becoming a go-between in Cynthia's love affairs. But in doing so, Molly risks ruining her reputation in the gossiping village of Hollingford - and jeopardizing everything with the man she is secretly in love with.

The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Biografía del autor:

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskellwas born in London in 1810, but she spent her formative years in Cheshire, Stratford-upon-Avon and the north of England. In 1832 she married the Reverend William Gaskell, who became well known as the minister of the Unitarian Chapel in Manchester s Cross Street. As well as leading a busy domestic life as minister s wife and mother of four daughters, she worked among the poor, traveled frequently and wrote. Mary Barton(1848) was her first success.Two years later she began writing for Dickens s magazine, Household Words, to which she contributed fiction for the next thirteen years, notably a further industrial novel, North and South(1855). In 1850 she met and secured the friendship of Charlotte Bronte. After Charlotte s death in March 1855, Patrick Bronte chose his daughter s friend and fellow-novelist to write TheLife of Charlotte Bronte(1857), a probing and sympathetic account, that has attained classic stature. Elizabeth Gaskell s position as a clergyman s wife and as a successful writer introduced her to a wide circle of friends, both from the professional world of Manchester and from the larger literary world. Her output was substantial and completely professional. Dickens discovered her resilient strength of character when trying to impose his views on her as editor of Household Words. She proved that she was not to be bullied, even by such a strong-willed man. Her later works, Sylvia s Lovers(1863), Cousin Phillis(1864) and Wives and Daughters(1866) reveal that she was continuing to develop her writing in new literary directions. Elizabeth Gaskell died suddenly in November 1865."
