Plan your Gaskell marathon!
We fell in love with Elizabeth Gaskell's stories when we first viewed Wives & Daughters. Cranford, in my opinion, matches or bests it, and that is hard to do. Be aware that Gaskell did not write the Cranford you are watching. It is a combination of three stories and some characters have been "melded" into new ones. However, the stories and characters in Cranford do reflect her attention to detail and her love for a wonderful storyline, or storylines as in Cranford. The acting is beyond top-notch. The costuming is amazing. The scenery is breathtaking. The conclusion is Kleenex-box worthy. We are planning the next Gaskell marathon so we can watch North and South, perhaps after we read it.
