Rachel Ray by Anthony Trollope( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Trollope was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. He wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues and conflicts of his day. This novel offers an entertaining view of a small community living its life in mid-nineteenth-century England. The novel first appeared in 1863, a year in which public reaction against the excesses of the popular sensationalist novel prompted the author to state that he was writing about "the commonest details of commonplace life among the most ordinary people."
The prime minister by Anthony Trollope( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can a morally scrupulous English gentleman make an effective Prime Minister? This is one of the enduringly fascinating problems posed in The Prime Minister (1876). And as Plantaganet Palliser, Duke of Omnium, overenthusiastically supported by Lady Glencora, presides over the Coalition government, Trollope reaches into the highest echelons of the English establishment, depicting political realities rather than ideology, portraying social, sexual and domestic politics as well as the public variety. The world of the novel is perplexed and dominated by the handsome impostor Ferdinand Lopez. Even the Duke and Duchess are not immune to his malign influence, as Lopez pursues Emily Wharton for her charm and her fortune, and plots to win membership of that most exclusive of English clubs, the Houses of Parliament
Phineas redux by Anthony Trollope( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth novel in Trollope's Palliser series, Phineas Redux stands on its own as a compelling work of political intrigue, personal crisis, and romantic jealousy. Phineas Finn lives quietly in Dublin, resigned to the fact that his political career is over and coming to terms with the death of his wife. He receives an unexpected invitation to return to Parliament, and jumps at the chance, whereupon old romances and rivalries are revived. When his adversary, Mr. Bonteen, is murdered, suspicion immediately falls on Finn, and his former friends and lovers seem only to add to his shame
The Macdermots of Ballycloran by Anthony Trollope( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic episode of the betrayal of poor Feemy Macdermot, together with the vengeance of her brother on the villain, adds a note of poignant pathos to the story. Altogether it may be said that "The Macdermots of Ballycloran" fully justifies its [Irish] locale and its title, while its alternate humour and pathos more than compensate for the lack of technique in the writing. It is really quite a good story. --Algar Thorold, 1906
The golden lion of Granpère by Anthony Trollope( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in a village in the Vosges mountains in north-eastern France, the novel concerns the events in the lives of an innkeeper's family: the relationship between George Voss, the landlord's son, and his beloved Marie, the rivalry between Voss and another suitor for Marie's hand in marriage, and the results of a betrothal based on mutual misunderstandings
The Eustace diamonds by Anthony Trollope( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Trollope's celebrated Parliamentary novels, of which The Eustace Diamonds (1873) is the third and most famous, are at once unfailingly amusing social comedies, melodramas of greed and deception, and precise nature studies of the political animal in its mid-Victorian habitat. With its purloined jewels, its conniving, resilient, mercenary heroine, and its partiality for the human spectacle in all its complexity, The Eustace Diamonds is a splendid example of Trollope's art at its most assured
La Vendée by Anthony Trollope( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in rural France in 1793 and centering on the civil war between royalists and rebel republicans, this is Trollope's only historical novel. Trollope's support for the rebels emerges not only through his treatment of the military conflict, but also in a romantic subplot, where the lovers are as doomed as the rebellion itself

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr. Scarborough's family by Anthony Trollope( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world has not yet forgotten the intensity of the feeling which existed when old Mr. Scarborough declared that his well-known eldest son was not legitimate. Mr. Scarborough himself had not been well known in early life. He had been the only son of a squire in Staffordshire over whose grounds a town had been built and pottery-works established. In this way a property which had not originally been extensive had been greatly increased in value, and Mr. Scarborough, when he came into possession, had found himself to be a rich man. He had then gone abroad, and had there married an En
