My Lady Ludlow is Elizabeth Gaskell's charming tale of the conflict between progress and tradition, set in the England of 1800. Lady Ludlow is a kind, generous, and responsible member of the English aristocracy. She is also a trenchant traditionalist, virulently opposed to any move that would bring change to the social order. In the little village of Hanbury over which she presides, she finds herself increasingly opposed by those who have different visions of the greater good. A clergyman wishes to build a schoolhouse to educate the poor; her estate steward wants to help a local poacher's son. Will Lady Ludlow be able to cope with the changing times? Told with warmth and a sure feel for period detail, My Lady Ludlow will delight all lovers of historical fiction.

In this rather long novella, published in 1858 in "Household Words", Mrs. Gaskell writes with her gentle humour about English attitudes, behaviours and manners in the early 19th century and the conservative views of the aristocracy in the years following the French Revolution.
