Cranford a perfect gem

by jillmwo on Apr 11, 2008

Cranford is a series of loosely connected episodic tales of an English town primarily populated by women. It is a small community of middle-aged and elderly women who react to the changes in their village, usually with some trepidation. They adhere to the idea that there are set and proper ways of conducting daily tasks and that one is poorly served by disruption of the tidy patterns of life, reflective of English attitudes in the transition between agrarian and industrial eras. Cranford is a caring community, full of random acts of faith and kindness. Lovely and very comforting domestic fiction.
