When Margaret Hale moves with her father from the comfort of the south of England to the industrial north, she is at first repulsed by what she sees; and then when she discovers the conditions under which the workers are forced to live, she is outraged. But this throws her into direct conflict with the powerful young mill-owner, John Thornton. Using personal passions to explore deep social divisions, North and South is a great romance – and one of Elizabeth Gaskell’s finest works.

This was my first time reading the book and Clare Wille (the narrator) did a fabulous job in bring the characters to life for me. She didn't have one of those boring robotic voices that puts one to sleep. Her voice was calm when it needed to be calm and enthusiastic when it was needed. She spoke in difference accents and voices for the characters which really helped distinguishing one from the other. And her speed in reading the book was perfect, it wasn't too slow that drove one mad and wasn't fast that would make it hard to follow or listen.
If you are looking for an audiobook of North & South, this will be the one.
