    Summary

    An accident at Marlborough Mills leaves John Thornton gravely wounded, and Margaret Hale is the only one able to offer him round-the-clock care. Taking place just before her father leaves for Oxford, Miss Hale is forced to confront her feelings for a man she isn't sure will ever wake up again. Some angst, some fluffy "locked in a room together" HEA goodness, and lots of tragedy to start. Blend of the BBC 2004 miniseries and the book. Please see notes if you wish to avoid descriptions of the incident.

    Summary

    Two years after her mother dies Margaret Hale follows her father, Richard Hale, from Durham, North Carolina to small-town Pennsylvania. Richard's new job teaching at the local community college put him and his daughter in contact with John Thornton, a local entrepreneur looking to finish his bachelor's degree.

    Margaret, having just transitioned from a high-profile criminal defense attorney to public defender, thinks she has the world figured out. She knows the current American criminal justice system is broken, the vast majority of the world's evils come from capitalism, and John Thornton is definitely an ass.

    John Thornton would rather eat glass than listen to the privileged and out-of-touch daughter of his new professor explain to him how the world works. At least, that's what he'd say if anyone asked.

    ---

    This is a modern retelling of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South set in America, all characters belong to her.

    Summary

    An alternate imagining of Mrs. Gaskell's story, assuming Margaret had been hurt more seriously on the day of the riot. Intertwines elements of both the book and the BBC series, but focuses less on angst and more on the relationship of John and Margaret.
