John Thornton, is a mill master, a true son of north, proud inheritor of its ethic of hard work and no nonsense. He is also a man of deep passions.
Margaret Hale, daughter of a parson, was brought up in the gently, idyllic seeming South, she has a naïve view of the world that the cynical mill master does not share.
Please understand, this is not a sequel, but rather my own a darker imaginings based on the themes and characters of Elizabeth Gaskell. If you’re looking for hearts and flowers, you will not find them here. What you will find is pride, hunger, desire and a growing passionate love that refuses to be crushed by circumstance.
