Just finished Chpt 6 of a new sequel to North and South titled 'Northern Light 'by Catherine Winchester. IMO, the characters are true to Mrs Gaskell's. The wedding night is sensitively written. Victorians might not approve but IMO the majority of RA fans will. As you know, the famous train station scene was written by a C21 writer, Sandy Welch, who made other changes as well to Mrs Gaskell's novel for the TV adaptation.
NEWS: Thanks to Calexora and Musa's keen eyes we have further details from a woman in NZ who had the pleasure of observing RA and Orlando Bloom 'doing lunch' a few mos ago...
