The Penguin English Library Edition of Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell “Eh miss but that be a rare young lady! She do have such pretty coaxing ways …” 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. Soon the girls become close and Molly finds herself cajoled into becoming a go-between in Cynthia’s love affairs. 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. The Penguin English Library – 100 editions of the best fiction in English from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
