    " Another wonderful volume of the Barchester Chronicles, rich in story and characters. "

    " A nice story about an attractive, impoverished young woman who falls in love with a well-born, but debt-ridden young man whose family has decreed that he must "marry money." This vehicle allows Mr. Trollope to introduce the usual run of characters coming from all walks of life, and to comment on the virtues and hypocrisies of the time, all with his usual conversational good humor. I love Trollope, and of course I know he's discursive, but in this case I didn't think the story really was worth 493 pages. It's still great fun, however, and I can't wait to read the next one. "

    " Includes a moving description of the alcoholic Sir Roger Scatcherd. The Doctor struggles to find a balance between professional responsibility, compassion and enabling in Sir Roger's dramatic death scene. "

    " I would give this 5 stars, but I try to save that for books that change me. It was 5 stars worth of fun, though. "

About the Author
Author Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) grew up in London. He inherited his mother’s ambition to write and was famously disciplined in the development of his craft. His first novel was published in 1847 while he was working in Ireland as a surveyor for the General Post Office. He wrote series of books set in the English countryside as well as those set in the political life, works that show great psychological penetration. One of his greatest strengths was his ability to re-create in his fiction his own vision of the social structures of Victorian England. The author of forty-seven novels, he was one of the most prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era.
