"Fortune smiles on Mark Robarts, a young man of charm and principle. Not only has Lady Lufton appointed him Vicar of Framley, but he has also been blessed with a happy marriage. Yet, his naivety and social ambition draw him toward a sophisticated, worldly set who question his moral values and sense of honour. Falling under the spell of the roguish Nathaniel Sowerby, Robarts is brought to the edge of ruin. Only his friends can save him but will they discover his predicament in time? For Lady Lufton there are further trials and tribulations when she suspects her son of forming an unsuitable attachment. Anthony Trollope brings all his accustomed wit, perceptive eye and lively comic touches to this matchless portrayal of nineteenth century life. Published to great acclaim in 1860, Framley Parsonage is one of his most popular novels and the fourth in the Barsetshire Chronicles."--Publisher's description

The golden lion of Granpère by Anthony Trollope( Book )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 libraries worldwide
Set in a village in the Vosges mountains in north-eastern France, The Golden Lion of Granpere (1867) was written when Trollope was at the height of his popularity. 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. A small-scale work, precise and detailed, it demonstrated a skill and level of social analysis peculiarly Trollope's own. This is a romance devoid of political dimension, yet acutely attentive to what a contemporary critic called 'the characteristic dress in which the small diplomacies of all kinds of social life clothe themselves'
