When her father leaves the Church, Margaret Hale is uprooted from her comfortable home in Hampshire to move with her family to the North of England. Initially repulsed by the ugliness of her new surroundings in the industrial town of Milton, Margaret becomes aware of the poverty and suffering of local mill workers and develops a passionate sense of social justice. In "North and South" Gaskell skilfully fused individual feeling with social concern, and in Margaret Hale, has created one of the most original heroines of Victorian literature.
