 North and South

After her cousin Edith weds Captain Lennox, Margaret Hale, 19, joyfully makes her way back to the charming southern village of Helstone from London. She spent over ten years in the city with Edith and her affluent aunt Shaw, where she developed into a talented young woman. Henry, the captain’s brother and a young barrister, had proposed to Margaret, but she had already turned him down. But when her father, the minister, leaves the Church of England and the rectory of Helstone out of conscience—his intellectual honesty having made him a dissenter—her existence is turned upside down.
