Dark Night's Work

Book cover
By: (1810-1865)

Dark Night's Work by Elizabeth Gaskell is a gripping and haunting novel that delves into themes of guilt, redemption, and the consequences of our actions. The story follows a man named Thurstan who is haunted by a horrific event from his past and is seeking solace and redemption through self-imposed exile in a remote village.

The novel's atmosphere is eerie and unsettling, with Gaskell expertly building tension and suspense as Thurstan's past slowly comes to light. The characters are complex and well-developed, each grappling with their own demons and inner turmoil. Gaskell's prose is beautifully crafted, drawing the reader into the dark and somber world of the story.

Overall, Dark Night's Work is a thought-provoking and emotionally resonant novel that explores the darker side of human nature. Gaskell's exploration of guilt, forgiveness, and the complexities of human relationships makes this a compelling and unforgettable read.

Book Description:
Love, murder and class commentary in Mrs Gaskell's usual brilliant style! This novel was originally serialised and published by Charles Dickens, with whom Mrs Gaskell had several disagreements. She chose to avoid melodrama and concentrate on psychological realism to produce a moving story of people meeting and parting across class divides.
