North and South

I apologize for my long absence from blogging as Andrew and I have been having computer and internet problems which have not yet ceased. Even we I didn't have problems, my other half finds himself in front of the computer most nights catching up on school work, which lessons my computer time.

As it is, I am much behind in posting events from the past two weeks but instead of doing that right now I will write of today.

Today I finished reading the first book I've ever read on a Kindle, or anything digital for that matter. I actually enjoyed it better than I expected.

The book I read was North and South which I completed it for the second time, and then I watched the film.

First of all, incredible book! Second of all, marvelous movie!
Please make them a part of your life soon!

I love how it's not just a love story but a good depiction of what the North and South were like during that time period, especially the North with the factory town. The story resonates with me since I lived in a town similar to Milton - from the novel- where Andrew grew up, which had similar struggles at the same time period.

If I'm not convincing enough watch this trailer of the 2005 film, BBC's North and South, starring Richard Armitage and Daniela Denby-Ashe.

P.S. If you have a Kindle the book is FREE to download!


  1. I just LOVE that movie! Haven't read the book yet, so tell me, which is better?

  2. The movie is excellent but the book is better - surprise, surprise! I've been reading other books by the same author and North and South seems to be her best. I'll have to do a post about her other books after I've finished reading them.
