Fifty-year-old William Whittlestaff becomes guardian to Mary Lawrie, the orphaned and penniless daughter of an old friend, and gradually finds himself falling in love with her. But Mary has already given her heart to the young John Gordon, who has gone to seek his fortune in the Kimberley diamond fields of South Africa. Gordon’s sudden return after a three years’ absence, on the very day of Whittlestaff’s proposal, precipitates the crisis at the center of the story.

An Old Man’s Love is Trollope’s last completed novel, finished just seven months before his death.

    " Difficult to evluate, as unfortunately I read it in Italian and the translation was so bad I could not appreciate the author's style nor, at times, the dialogues, which were sort of obscure. "

    " Listened to most of this on the drive to Wawrwick. Very well read and quite entertaining. Like all Trollope, very slow paced. If I had not been captive in the car I probably would have put it down but I am glad I did not as it kept me sane between the M6 toll and the A38. "
