Seventeen-year-old Molly Gibson worships her widowed father. But when he decides to remarry, Molly "s life is thrown off course by the arrival of her vain, shallow and selfish stepmother. There is some solace in the shape of her new stepsister Cynthia, who is beautiful, sophisticated and irresistible to every man she meets.

But in doing so, Molly risks ruining her reputation in the gossiping village of Hollingford - and jeopardizing everything with the man she is secretly in love with.

GASKELL (E.)

GASKELL ELIZABETH (1810-1865)

Après avoir passé son enfance dans un village du Cheshire, Elizabeth Stevenson épouse un ministre du culte unitarien et s’installe à Manchester.

Son premier roman, Mary Barton , dit la misère de la grande ville vers le milieu du siècle. Sa publication en 1848, année de révolution, lui vaut un succès immédiat et les éloges de Dickens et de Carlyle. Dickens l’invite à collaborer à son magazine, Household Words , dans lequel est publiée sa seconde œuvre importante, Cranford (1853). Ce roman de la vie provinciale évoque, loin de tout sentimentalisme comme de toute satire, le village de son enfance, Knutsford, et les mille petits événements qui l’agitent sous une apparence de calme et d’immobilité. Ce roman reste son œuvre la plus populaire.

Elizabeth Gaskell revient ensuite au roman social, avec Ruth (1853), qui a pour sujet la réprobation dont est victime une femme séduite, puis avec Nord et Sud (North and South , 1855).

Elle publie une Vie de Charlotte Brontë (Life of Charlotte Brontë , 1857), où elle manifeste une admiration chaleureuse pour celle qui fut son amie. Cet ouvrage est à la fois une œuvre d’art et un document de première main. Certains considèrent que Femmes et filles (Wives and Daughters ), roman inachevé, est son chef-d’œuvre.
