Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An 1855 tale of English ecclesiastical life, this work from the author's Barsetshire series relates the humor and pathos that ensue when a kindly clergyman becomes the subject of a scandalous tabloid treatment charging him with financial impropriety. Features a cast of amusingly realistic and memorable characters, naturalistic dialogue, and consummate plotting.

Synopsis:

When an honest clergyman finds himself charged with financial impropriety by a Fleet Street tabloid, scandal, pathos, and humor result. Features an amusing narrative and cast, realistic dialogue, and a lively plot.

Synopsis:

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.

Who knew a Victorian writer could be so delicately ironic? The plot of The Warden is deceptively simple; the complexity is in the character's moral choices - isn't this true in most of our lives? This is just the first volume of the Barchester Chronicles. In case you get hooked on Trollope, you've got a string of treats in store.
