Teaser:: Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell

I'm a lover of the classics. I saw North and South several years ago and I was...ah-mazed. I mean Holy Hotness Mr. Thornton! Be still my heart. Ever since I have been obsessed with Elizabeth Gaskell. I've yet to read Cranford, but I did see the film. SO good! I mean, Judy Dench is in it. How can it not be good if she's in it?! It is actually very funny. Several laughable parts! I just downloaded this classic on my Kindle and I can't wait to get started.

“Out of the way! We are in the throes of an exceptional emergency! This is no occassion for sport- there is lace at stake!"


“Miss Jenkyns wore a cravat, and a little bonnet like a jockey-cap, and altogether had the appearance of a strong-minded woman; although she would have despised the modern idea of women being equal to men. Equal, indeed! She knew they were superior.”
