Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel Mary Barton tells a story of the plight of the lower classes in Victorian-Era England. Set in Manchester in the mid-1800s, the plot revolves around a young woman, her two potential love-interests (one each from the lower- and upper-classes), and her immediate family, most especially her father, and her estranged aunt; it's a story of class conflict, romance, murder, and redemption. The meticulously researched novel truly puts the reader amidst the daily sights and sounds of a Victorian-Era industrial city. The Manchester Guardian reviewed the book in 1849 writing: "As a whole, the tale is beautifully written; the characters introduced are graphically delineated; the events are so interestingly interwoven, and the groundwork is so artistically constructed, that whoever reads the two first chapters is sure to read the whole story."
