Synopses & Reviews
The Great Orley Farm Case arose out of certain irregularities—and ensuing complications—in the will of Sir Joseph Mason. Did Lady Mason forge her husbands signature to the codicil bequeathing the farm to her son? Is she a criminal? Orley Farm is Trollope at his most penetrating—weighing and balancing individual hearts against English custom. Two vol. bound as one.
Not a novel of rural life, but a great legal melodrama. Is Lady Mason a forger? 40 atmospheric illustrations by artist John Everett Millais.
