Although Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daugthers is one of my favourite books ever, and I love her short stories ('The Old Nurse's Story' is one of the best ghost stories ever), somehow I've never managed to get into her other novels. This may be changing - I picked up a copy of Ruth last week and started it yesterday, and now I can't put it down. Also, I think tragic Victorian tales of suffering suit this absolutely vile weather, which shows absolutely no sign of ever getting better again.

I'm a huge, huge fan of 'North and South' and fond of 'Cranford' and 'Wives and Daughters'. Haven't read any of her short stories though. Are they published as a collection?
