Lady Ludlow is absolute mistress of Hanbury Court and a resolute opponent of anything that might disturb the class system into which she was born. She will keep no servant who can read and write and insists that the lower orders have no rights, but only duties. However, the winds of change are blowing through the village of Hanbury. The vicar, Mr. Gray, wishes to start a Sunday school for the spiritual betterment of its pupils; Mr. Horner wants to educate the citizens into becoming more useful and active members of society. But Lady Ludlow proves to be not so rigid as one may think...

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.
