Synopses & Reviews
Framley Parsonage (1861) by Anthony Trollope is one of the charming series of loosely connected novels set in Barsetshire. This is the fourth book to appear in the series, but may be read as a standalone work, and enjoyed on its own merits.
The new vicar, na ve and generous Mark Robarts, is embroiled in a sticky financial situation when he is preyed upon by Mr. Sowerby who convinces him to lend money. Meanwhile, the vicar's sister Lucy falls in love with his dear friend Lord Lufton, and as a result falls under the sharp scrutiny of Lady Lufton, the young Lord's highly discriminating mother.
