If you love Pride & Prejudice but haven't read North & South, you're doing yourself a disservice. Margaret Hale, a young woman abruptly moved from her idyllic country life to a mill town, develops a passionate sense of social justice and an equally passionate antipathy to the enigmatic mill owner John Thornton. This oft-overlooked classic features a sharp interrogation of the Industrial Revolution and a deep, slow-burning romance guaranteed to satisfy.
