When a country doctor comes to Sherlock Holmes with a far-fetched tale of a sudden death, a devil dog and an ancient curse, Holmes is sceptical. Could the demise of Sir Charles Baskerville really have been caused by the gigantic ghostly hound which is said to have haunted his family for generations?

Written at the peak of her career, Gaskells sorrowful tale of betrayed love is immensely affecting. For Paul Manning, one of the undeniable charms of the countryside is his beautiful yet naïve cousin Phillis. But, when Paul finds himself uncomfortably implicated in the romantic drama that unfolds between...

Phillis and his sophisticated colleague, country life suddenly becomes not quite the simple and artless pleasure it once was.

Gaskells exploration of the threat posed to an uncomplicated, rustic way of life by the rapid industrialisation of the 19th century provides the backdrop to this touching tale of romance.
