Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (1810 - 1865).

Molly and her father have lived alone since the death of her mother. Now Mr Gibson decides it will be in Molly's best interests for him to marry again. The new "Mama" brings to the household many changes, including a glamorous new step-sister. Mrs Gibson starts scheming to have Cynthia marry one of the sons of the local squire, but she does not understand Cynthia's reluctance or why Molly is meeting Mr Preston in the forest. <br><br>Secrets, love affairs and society gossip abound in this social commentary novel written by Mrs Gaskell (author of North and South and Mary Barton). Love across the class divide, love of parents for children and step-children, love which is a 'heated fancy', love between sisters, and sincere self-sacrificing love of one person for another whether brother or beloved - all are delicately and delightfully drawn in this masterpiece of 19th century literature, and all are brought to life in this dramatic reading with a stunning cast of voices. Starring Elizabeth Klett as the "Wife" of the title, Kristin G and Amanda Friday as the "Daughters", narrated by Beth Thomas. (Summary by Beth Thomas)

I'm not sure that role would be the best choice for you, actually. Do you know the book at all? Miss Dorothy Browning is a 50-ish old maid, and if I remember correctly you are quite young? She gets out the Bible and gives a few stern lectures to the giddy young things - wouldn't you rather be one of them? Maybe a collection of the "maid" parts, and any of the other "miss" parts apart from Miss Browning might be better suited to your voice? Miss Piper or Miss Hornblower or Miss Goodenough all get in a bit of gossiping, or Hannah Oakes is a young mother. (You can claim more than one, as long as they don't appear in the same chapter.)

Oops - my bad! Betty is also an elderly servant (she has nursed Molly since she was young). :oops:

Maria is the fashionable young housemaid, and you can also have Hannah Oakes as well if you like? Or Miss Goodenough, the daughter?
