Middle class and rural life 1820s mined in detail for class, values, occupations to fill the time. Molly is earnest heroine who suffers step mother and sister's foibles.

This is the second book I have read by Elizabeth Gaskell and liked it just as much as the first. I did not like the character of scheming, self-absorbed Mrs. Gibson but every other character I did. This was read for a group/buddy read. ( )

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!

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.
