Mr Harrison’s Confessions by Elizabeth Gaskell
After loving Cranford, I continued The Cranford Chronicles with this charming, comedy of errors when the young, worldly but naïve doctor comes to the small, provincial town of Duncombe.
That is 1 book read in 3 months which I am little disappointed with, however it does bring my total, so far, up to 7 books and I am very pleased with that. Now it is time for the October group question:
Share the most memorable scene from one of your reads for this event.
One of my favourite reads for the event, so far, has to be The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit. It has many memorable scenes I could mention: the children waving their white handkerchiefs at the passing trains; rescuing the young runner from the train tunnel and making flags of the girls’ red petticoats to stop the train. However, I would say my favourite has to be when Bobby, by chance, goes down to the train station to discover when the smoke clears that her father has returned; a really beautiful, memorable and poignant scene.
Have you been reading any classic female authors recently? What is your favourite memorable scene from a women’s classic?
