About the Writer

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell, often referred to as Mrs Gaskell, was a 19th-century English novelist, biographer and short story writer. 

She wrote a biography of her friend Charlotte Brontë, though she is best known for her novels written in reaction to the industrialisation of Manchester, where she lived for much of her life. These included  North and South (1854), a study of the tensions between mill-owners and workers, Mary Barton (1848), which deals with the difficulties faced by the Manchester working class, and the controversial Ruth (1853), the story of a young unmarried pregnant woman. She also wrote Cranford (1853), a gentle, observant tale of two spinster sisters.

Gaskell had not yet completed Wives and Daughters, her humourous coming-of-age tale, when she died suddenly of a heart attack on 12 November 1865.
