I bought the whole collection of Little Black Classics not only because they look so pretty on my shelves, but also because I was hoping to read some authors which I had never heard of but were pretty great. Elizabeth Gaskell was of those.
This collection contains two short stories which portray her nice writing style. The first is the titular story and it has this Victorian vibes all over. And considering this was the old nurse’s story – I would certainly hope she was not telling this to little children.
