    Summary

    This is an attempt at a happier ending to the Great Exhibition scene between John & Margaret. This combines text (in italics) from Sandy Welch's amazing BBC script and Elizabeth Gaskell's wonderful book (neither of which do I own). Reviews and comments are welcome.

    Summary

    A retelling of Gaskell's classic. Saudade- a nostalgic longing for someone or something that was loved and then lost, with the knowledge that it might possibly never return, aka a love that remains.

    Margaret Hale returns to Helstone to live a peaceful life but instead has to move to the smoky town of Milton. An encounter with the nouveau-riche, hardened mill master John Thornton with traumas of his own lead to conflicting opinions, intensified by a growing attraction between the two.

    Summary

    ** 3/24/2021 - I'll update this again eventually. My real romantic life has been an unbelievably crazy rollercoaster lately and I just haven't had the energy to write a good fictional romance for Margaret. Thanks to everyone who's expressed interest in and supported my stories. **

    Sometimes darkness brings enlightenment. Soon after John Thornton's first proposal, our heroine begins to realize that the master of Marlborough Mills isn’t the problem.

    And things go on from there.

    North & South from Margaret Hale's POV, though that changes later on. I tend to stick mostly to the novel, but there will be glimmers of the 2004 BBC adaptation, too.
