This selection of one short novel and eight stories shows Mrs. Gaskell working in different genres and with a wide range of material. As in her novels she explores different kinds of love, and her observations about human nature are as acute here as in her longer works. In addition to the title tale, this edition includes The Sexton's Hero, Christmas Storms and Sunshine: The Well of Pen-Morfa, The Heart of John Middleton, Morton Hall, My French Master, The Manchester Marriage, and Crowley Castle. There is no other edition of these works available.

`Suzanne Lewis is to be congratulated on making accessible another volume of Gaskell's shorter fiction ... she has brought together and discreetly annotated a wonderful collection of stories, which enrich the general reader's understanding of Elizabeth Gaskell and her extraordinary contribution to Victorian literature.'
