The amiable and talented Katherine of the Gaskell Blog is leading a group read of Mrs. Gaskell’s novella Moorland Cottage. It starts today and runs through February 15, 2011. You can check out the full group read schedule.
Published in 1850, Moorland Cottage is a delightful story of a widow, her two children and her neighbors the Buxton’s. It was the inspiration for screenwriter Heidi Thomas’ plot line and characters featured in the mini-series Return to Cranford.
