This is a story of contrasts, between North and South, between rural and industrialized England, and above all between the central characters of Margaret Hale and John Thornton, the mill owner...

5.0 North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell #2 (how to build a better badass, Victorian style)
There are many remarkable characters in North and South, but perhaps my favorite of all was Hannah Thornton, John Thornton's mother.
