If you like “Pride and Prejudice” then you will love North and South. North and South is a novel about rebellion. The author explores the issues of class and gender in the Victorian era. Margaret Hale, the middle-class southerner who moves to the northern industrial town of Milton, is caught up in conflicts: religious, industrial riots, naval mutiny, sympathy for hardworking mill workers and her growing attraction to the charismatic mill owner, John Thornton.
