This classic novel has been thrice adapted for the screen by the BBC. Mary Smith relates the story of her time with middle-aged spinster sisters Miss Matty and Miss Deborah. Witty, poignant, and often ironic, Cranford is the tale of what these two women will do to remain respectable, proper, and kind with only moderate means. Download and start listening now!

    " While I found the stories in this book entertaining, I left each story slightly confused as to how it related in the storyline. I also couldn't avoid the feeling of being abandoned at the end of the book, no real enfing was provided. I did enjoy it though as more of a collection of short stories. "

    " If you like Jane Austin and the Anne of Green Gables books, you will enjoy this. "

    " More a series of vignettes than a continuous plot-- this collection was an enjoyable picture of the lives of some interesting characters. I appreciated the wit and humor that characterized gaskell's writing. "

    " The charming small hardback edition I read includes a short novel (Cranford), a short story (The Cage at Cranford) and a novella (The Moorland Cottage). Cranford focuses on the foibles and particularities of the mostly feminine residents of 19th century Cranford, and reminded me a little of the Miss Read books with its gentle humor and feeling. The Moorland Cottage had a somewhat melodramatic plot. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of the landscape. "
