Publisher Comments:

WHAT IS A WOMAN TO DO WITH HER LIFE?

That's the question Alice Vavasor asks.

What do you do when you've got two suitors — and a Victorian world of trouble

When the great Victorian novelist asks Can You Forgive Her? He is speaking of Alice, of course, who was engaged to her wild cousin George. Then she was engaged to John Grey, who wants to run for Parliament, but she broke that off as well.

In Switzerland, with George and his sister Kate, Fate takes a hand and she meets the vivacious Lady Glencora Palliser and her stolid politician husband, Plantagenet, there on their honeymoon. Glencora has just broken with her true passion, the irresponsible Bruno Fitzgerald and she's eager for a friendly shoulder to cry on.

When Plantagenet persuades John Grey to pursue his dream of Parliament, all Victorian heck breaks loose

Plunge into Volume One of this classic story, dramatized by BBC TV and BBC Radio as the first episodes of the epic The Pallisers. Join the happy legions of Trollope fans.

Synopsis:

Alice Vavasor, a girl of independent spirit and means, is engaged to the "paragon" John Grey but, seemingly distressed by his perfection, she jilts him in favour of her less reputable cousin, George. Alice's story is interwoven with that of the early married life of her friend, Lady Glencora.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
