Description

Growing up in Yorkshire, the daughter of a deceased clergyman, Maggie Browne is encouraged to devote herself to her brother, Edward, upon whom their widowed mother dotes. Through the example and guidance of her mentor, Mrs Buxton, Maggie learns that self-sacrifice is the key to living a fulfilled life. How much personal happiness will she forgo in the name of duty and devotion to her brother? The precursor to and arguably the template for George Eliot's "The Mill on the Floss", The Moorland Cottage was written in 1850 by famous Victorian author and biographer, Elizabeth Gaskell. Originally written as part of a Christmas edition, this novella depicts the struggle of a strong-minded Victorian woman, torn between her dreams and her duty towards her family. Maggie's love story, Edward's perfidy and the dramatic conclusion at sea, make The Moorland Cottage a timeless tale.
