Cranford, in 1842, is a market town in northwest England. It is a place governed by etiquette, custom and above all, an intricate network of ladies. It seems that life has always been conducted according to their social rules. For spinsters Deborah Jenkyns, the arbiter of correctness, and Matty, her demurring sister, the town is a hub of intrigue. Handsome new doctor Frank Harrison has arrived from London; a retired Captain and his daughters move in across the street and preparations for Lady Ludlow's garden party are underway. The town has some secrets which are about to be revealed. But news comes that shakes the town: a railway line from Manchester is coming to Cranford

Cousin Phillis and other tales by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell( )

169 editions published between 1864 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 2,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-65) wrote about thirty short stories, many of them for Charles Dickens's magazines, "Household Words", and "All the Year Round". This present selection, which includes seven of her best, is designed to display not only her craft but also her remarkable range, from the comic to the tragic, from the macabre to the idyllic. Her delight in the supernatural is perhaps nowhere more evident than in "The Old Nurse's Story". "The Crooked Branch" and "Half a Life-time Ago" both suggest the ways in which she drew on and transformed Wordsworth. In "Lois the Witch", set in seventeenth-century New England, we are shown a community turned in upon itself. The volume concludes with "Cousin Phillis", Elizabeth Gaskell's masterpiece of short fiction. -- From publisher's description
A dark night's work by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell( )

78 editions published between 1863 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 1,927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story centers on a country lawyer, Edward Wilkins, and his daughter Ellinor. Edward has an artistic and literary personality, unsuited to his social position as the son of a successful lawyer who takes over his father's practice in the provincial town of Hamley. His legal representation of the local gentry and nobility leads him to try fitting into their social circles, only to be mocked and treated with derision. He develops a drinking problem and spends more money than he can afford to in his attempts to be an equal to his clients. His bad habits lead to problems in his business, and Edward is forced to take on a junior partner named Mr. Dunster. At the same time, Ellinor becomes engaged to a young upcoming country gentleman named Ralph Corbet. Corbet initiates the engagement partly through love of Ellinor and partly because of a promise of money from Edward. Edward continues to drink and overspend, leading to a confrontation with Mr. Dunster. In the heat of the argument, Edward strikes Mr. Dunster, killing him. Ellinor and a family servant named Dixon help Edward to bury the body in their flower garden." --
