Cousin Phillis - a miniature masterpiece - is set in the 1840s, when the coming of the railway was changing the face of England, and quiet rural communities, coming into contact with the outside world, were changed forever. The story focuses on the effect these changes have on a naïve country girl, Phillis, as she encounters love, with all its pains and pleasures, for the first time.

    " This book reminded me a little of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. I once again loved the virtue displayed by the lady character. "

    " A richly-written small story of a young girl's disastrous first love. No surprises, but the descriptions of farm life are utterly beguiling. "

    " Even though Gaskell's stories always contain some of that Victorian-era primness that, frankly, drives me nuts, I love them because they also contain insight that can be funny, sad, beautiful, or all of the above. Definitely worth reading. "

    " Short and sentimental, but not maudlin, this book tells the story of a young woman who becomes ill from disappointed love but eventually resolves to embrace life for the sake of her family, who love and support her. "

About the Author
Author Elizabeth Gaskell

Elizabeth Gaskell (1810–1865) was an English novelist and short-story writer born in London and raised in Knutsford, Cheshire, which became the model for village settings in her novels. In 1832 she married William Gaskell, a Unitarian minister. Her first novel, Mary Barton, published in 1848, was immensely popular and brought her to the attention of Charles Dickens, who solicited her work for his periodical, Household Words, for which she wrote the series subsequently reprinted as Cranford.
