Literary Parlor with Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion

Join bibliophile, Kate Howe, for what surely will be a lively discussion of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel Wives and Daughters.

Elizabeth Gaskell wrote Wives and Daughters from 1864 to 1866 as a series for Cornhill Magazine. Gaskell died suddenly in 1865 and the novel was completed by Frederick Greenwood. It tells the story of a young Molly Gibson who has been raised by her widowed father, Dr. Gibson. As Molly grows older, she attracts the attention of one of Dr. Gibson’s apprentices so she is sent to stay with the Hamleys of Hamley Hill. While she is away, Dr. Gibson remarries; Molly is not fond of her new stepmother but does find an ally in her new stepsister. The novel weaves an intricate tale of romance.
