When Margaret Hale hastily rejected the wealthy industrialist's fervent marriage proposal, she could not have foreseen the events that would lead her to change her mind and open her heart. But was it too late now to let the handsome, brooding mill owner know? Based on the novel North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, this book weaves a change near the end of the original plot to create a romantic continuation of an enduring love story.  A Heart for Milton brings to life all of Gaskell's rich characters: Nicholas Higgins, Hannah Thornton, Henry Lennox, Mr. Bell, and others. But at its core, this tale unfolds the joy, hope, passion, and fulfillment of the love forged between John Thornton and Margaret Hale as the reader follows their journey through the uncertainties of their engagement to the trials encountered in their first year of marriage ...and beyond.

About Trudy Brasure

Brasure's vision of Thornton is truly a spectacular one....The softer side of Thornton, falling in love with Margaret, as well as the beauty of southern England, made the story warming and romantic. It was also wonderful to see Margaret not only as a doting wife, but a woman that still stuck to her principles. Their developing relationship was a worthwhile journey to follow.... In all, Brasure's work is a great fit with the original, dovetailing nicely and giving readers of 'North and South' a great fairytale that they can enjoy for years to come." -- Austenprose.com
