Truly excitable “fictional” evidence that man can change–because of a woman
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
“All this gladness in life, all honest pride in doing my work in the world, all this keen sense of being, I owe to her!” And it doubles the gladness, it makes the pride glow, it sharpens the sense of existence till I hardly know if it is pain or pleasure, to think that I owe it to one – nay, you must, you shall hear” – said he, stepping forwards with stern determination – “to one whom I love, as I do not believe man ever loved woman before.”
Give this book a chance if you love Jane Austen and want an adventure with it. It is truly one of my favorites read in my later years.
