north and south

Did I mention that I love BBC period dramas?

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell is a beautifully written novel showing the hardships life in industrial England and the BBC did it justice in 2004 when they produced a four part series based on the novel.  I loved the novel and absolutely loved this adaptation.  It stays true to the spirit of the novel and does a beautiful job of showing life within the divided classes of northern England.  I do have to say that Richard Armitage as the brooding hero is quite enjoyable to watch.

I love this movie!! I sit in my bed with my laptop when James is at church meeting late and watch each episode of this. Hey we have been loving the Robin Hood series by the BBC. This North and South man is in it too. You have to get through the first episode, but we love the rest!! Any good books lately? I love your recommendations.
