Cranford Talks is for those of you who want to give and receive honest, respectful opinions on local businesses, contractors, etc, without censorship. We welcome all posts about what is happening in.   Lushly illustrated in full color photographs, this companion book will provide fans of the two mini-series, Cranford and Return to Cranford, with all the behind the scenes stories about the production, film locations, map of Cranford, and the characters and actors who portray them.

Apart from Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskill's books have some of the best material for a miniseries, and the way the Sue and Susan compiled information from three of her major books (Cranford, Dr. Harrison's Confession's and My Lady Ludlow) into one major production is both clever and believable. What other book might you compare Cranford to and why? It reminds me a bit of "At Home in Mitford" because it takes you to a little village where you really end up wanting to move because you fall so in love with the people there. Which scene was your favorite? If I told of my favorite scene, it would be a spoiler.
