Overview

Margaret Mackenzie doesn't have much of a life. At 35, she's single and lacks beauty and brilliance. Her middle-class relatives neglect her, so she's relegated to nursing her ailing brother. But when her brother dies and leaves her his fortune, the new-found money generates a life with unexpected twists and turns.

She's swindled out of part of her inheritiance and her relations battle for the rest. With no prior marriage prospects, she's suddenly courted by three men. Unwittingly, she makes enemies and finds herself in a scandal.

With insight and compassion, Trollope uses her life to explore Victorian England's thorny social issues and the maddening intricacies of its law and business.

"A sweeping, amusing and often touching panorama of Victorian life." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

Meet the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) started his writing career while working in Ireland as a postal surveyor. Travelling around the country, Trollope gained knowledge of the country and its people which proved to be useful material for his first two novels, The Macdermots of Ballycloran (1847) and The Kellys and the O'Kellys (1848). Trollope soon started writing fiercely, producing a series entitled Chronicles of Barsetshire. The Warden, the first in the series, was published in 1855. Barchester Towers (1857), the comic masterpiece, Doctor Thorne (1858), Framley Parsonage (1861), The Small House at Allington (1864) and The Last Chronicle of Barset (1867) followed, portraying events in an imaginary English county of Barsetshire. In 1867, Trollope left the Post Office to run as a candidate for the Parliament. Having lost at the elections, Trollope focused on his writing. A satire from his later writing, The Way We Live Now (1875) is often viewed as Trollope's major work, however, his popularity and writing reputation diminished at the later stage of his life. Anthony Trollope died in London in 1882.
