Wives and Daughters, Elizabeth Gaskell's last novel, is regarded by many as her masterpiece. Molly Gibson is the daughter of the doctor in the small provincial town of Hollingford. Her widowed father marries a second time to give Molly the woman's presence he feels she lacks, but until thearrival of Cynthia, her dazzling step-sister, Molly finds her situation hard to accept. Intertwined with the story of the Gibsons is that of Squire Hamley and his two sons; as Molly grows up and falls in love she learns to judge people for what they are, not what they seem. Through Molly'sobservations the hierarchies, social values, and social changes of early nineteenth-century English life are made vivid in a novel that is timeless in its representation of human relationships.This edition, the first to be based in the original Cornhill Magazine serialization of 1864-6, draws on a full collation of the manuscript to present the most accurate text so far available.… (mere)

  1. 80
    Kærlighed og svaghed af Jane Austen (Shuffy2)
    Shuffy2: In addition to North and South by Gaskell, Wives and Daughters is another great read for people who love Austen's Persusion and Sense and Sensibility!

    Doctor Thorne af Anthony Trollope (atimco)
    atimco: Trollope's Mary Thorne and Gaskell's Molly Gibson have much in common: both their father-figures are country doctors with connections to the local nobility, both fall in love with a man above them in station and wealth, both face undeserved public shame in their social circles, and both are sensible, intelligent heroines.… (mere)

5747. Wives and Daughters: An Every-day Story, by Elizabeth Gaskell (read 8 Jun 2021) This novel, first published in about 1863, is laid in England the 1820s and 1830s and the author died before finishing it but only one chapter was not written and one knows how it was to end. I was surprised to find at times it was a fetchingly good story and I looked forward to reading it. Molly is the central character. She is the daughter of an English doctor. Her mother is dead but her father after some years of being a widower, rather suddenly and with not much care remarries a woman with a daughter about Mollie's age, Cynthia. Cynthia is a scatter-brain, as is her mother, now Mollie's stepmother. I often had to laugh at said stepmother's conniving speech. Long before the final part of the story one easily guesses how it will end but this does not detract from one's interest. ( )

This book was long, but I enjoyed it very much. However, if anyone else desires to read it, I feel like I should warn you that the author died before she could finish the last chapter. Therefore, it was finished by another writer in an essay style that surmises how Mrs. Gaskell would have probably finished the novel. This disappointed me, but I still loved the book so much that I gave it 5 stars. This audiobook's narrator was Nadia May, who is one of the best narrators I've ever heard. She completely brings conversations to life in such a natural and realistic manner. Therefore, I would recommend listening to this novel with Nadia May as the narrator over reading it. ( )

2021 review: No change to my previous opinion.

2013 review:
This review is specifically for the audiobook - see the Kindle edition for my comments on Gaskell's novel.

Nadia May does a marvelous job narrating this Victorian novel & with one exception, I loved the voices she used for the various characters. The one exception was Lady Cumnor, whose voice had a slight speech impediment (sort of like Elmer Fudd) - May did it excellently but I just couldn't get Elmer Fudd out of my head every time Lady Cumnor appeared!

Could be spoilers.

I was disappointed. The lack of the ending was frustrating, but that's a different matter. The book is weirdly repetitious & I wondered if it would have been re-edited between serialization and final publication. The oddest thing was the recurring reference to Hamlet's line about time being out of joint. While maybe the characters sat around and read Shakespeare but it wasn't really talked about. And the tedium of the stupid sort-of-evil stepmother and the father who didn't take action on behalf of his daughter. On and on and on. I remember really liking North and South, but I don't think I will read any more books by Gaskell.

This would get five stars if it were complete. As it is, to read almost 700 pages and miss out on the climax is worth losing at least a star. If only it had an ending like [b:North and South|156538|North and South|Elizabeth Gaskell|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1349633381l/156538._SY75_.jpg|1016482]!

The answer was silly enough, logically; but forcible in fact. Cynthia was Cynthia, and not Venus herself could have been her substitute. In this one thing Mr. Preston was more really true than many worthy men, who, seeking to be married, turn with careless facility from the unattainable to the attainable, and keep their feelings and fancy tolerably loose till they find a woman who consents to be their wife. But no one would ever be to Mr. Preston what Cynthia had been, and was; and yet he could have stabbed her in certain of his moods.
