Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book centres on Mr. Harding, a clergyman of great personal integrity who is nevertheless in possession of an income from a charity far in excess of the sum devoted to the purposes of the foundation. On discovering this, young John Bold turns his reforming zeal to exposing what he regards as an abuse of privilege, despite the fact that he is in love with Mr. Harding's daughter Eleanor.

Synopsis:

When John Bold decides to challenge corruption in the Church of England he sets the whole town of Barchester ablaze with the consequences. This book is the study of conflicting loyalties and principles in a cathedral city where the gentle warden becomes an unwilling focus of national controversy.

About the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was born in London to a bankrupt barrister father and a mother who, as a well-known writer, supported the family. Trollope enjoyed considerable acclaim both as a novelist and as a senior civil servant in the Post Office. He published more than forty novels and many short stories that are regarded by some as among the greatest of nineteenth-century fiction.

Nancy Schultz, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Nancy Schultz)
The first of Trollope's "Barsetshire" novels. Fabulous characters, wonderful, heartwarming, funny story. Trollope is the master of the aptonym: naming many of his characters for their personal or professional traits, as in Mr. Quiverfull, the rector with too many children to feed. Broader in his humor and less subtle in his story than Jane Austen, but more hopeful and happy than Dickens, he is by far my favorite of the Victorian novelists.
