I have recently seen a BBC drama on a dvd from the local library in Florida called North and South and have really liked it so much ordered a copy from Amazon.com and bought the book as well. This is a story by Elizabeth Gaskell (both the movie and the book I never heard before coming across it in the library). For any Pride and predjudice lovers this story would really appeal and the actors did a very fine job. The story is based on class and social differences between privileged southern and industrial northern. Lovely love story and much much more.
