About Elizabeth Gaskell

Although born in London, Elizabeth Gaskell was raised in the rural Cheshire town of Knutsford which became the source for so much of her highly accurate portrayal of mid-nineteenth century Britain, and as such are of interest to social historians as well as lovers of literature.
She married William Gaskell, a lecturer at Manchester University and a Unitarian Minister and they embarked on a life of social and educational work and the raising of their large family.

My Lady Ludlow Audiobook

My Lady Ludlow Audiobook
Written by Elizabeth Gaskell
Read by Susannah York

Highly acclaimed actress Susannah York reads this exclusive unabridged audio book of My Lady Ludlow.

Written by Elizabeth Gaskell, creator of the characters that were to become the basis for the hugely successful TV series Cranford, My Lady Ludlow paints a brilliant picture of the shift in power in a rural Northern village, from the velvety feudal Ludlows to the glitter of the new money rattling through the system courtesy of the brazen baker from Birmingham.

Lady Ludlow’s appalling snobbery, prejudice and her bred-in-the-bone conviction as to the superiority of the English aristocracy and their feudal way of life are tested, and found wanting, in this radical tale of the collapse of a social system.

One of the extraordinary things about My Lady Ludlow as a book is that in spite of the creation of a monster of hide bound arrogance and pretention Gaskell cannot help but produce a character that you end up rooting for right up to the wide grin induced by the final twist in the plot.

This very special unabridged audio book of  My Lady Ludlow is available for download as mp3 files and in audiobook format for your iPod - only from Silksoundbooks.
