PC Small House At Allington

Trollope, Anthony

£8.99

This is perhaps Trollope’s gentlest and most charming story, less satirical than its predecessors in the Barsetshire series, and less shaded with tragic overtones than ‘The Last Chronicle’. Trollope’s characters are drawn with affection and humour.

Description

Engaged to the ambitious and self-serving Adolphus Crosbie, Lily Dale is devastated when he jilts her for the aristocratic Lady Alexandrina. Although crushed by his faithlessness, Lily still believes she is bound to her unworthy former fianc̩ for life and therefore condemned to remain single after his betrayal. And when a more deserving suitor pays his addresses, she is unable to see past her feelings for Crosbie. Written when Trollope was at the height of his popularity, The Small House at Allington (1864) contains his most admired heroine in Lily Dale Рa young woman of independent spirit who nonetheless longs to be loved Рand is a moving dramatization of the ways in which personal dilemmas are affected by social pressures.
