9780099528654: The Warden (Vintage Classics)

The first book in Anthony Trollope's funny, warm, well-loved Barchester Chronicles—perfect for Austen fans The tranquil atmosphere of the cathedral town of Barchester is shattered when a scandal breaks concerning the financial affairs of a church-run almshouse for elderly men. In the ensuing furor, Septimus Harding, the almshouse's well-meaning warden, finds himself pitted against his daughter's suitor Dr. John Bold, a zealous local reformer. Matters are not improved when Harding's abrasive son-in-law, Archdeacon Grantly, leaps into the fray to defend him against a campaign Bold begins in the national press. An affectionate and wittily satirical view of the workings of the Church of England, this novel is also a subtle exploration of the rights and wrongs of moral crusades and, in its account of Harding's intensely felt personal drama, a moving depiction of the private impact of public affairs.

About the Author:

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) was one of the most respected English novelists of the Victorian era, writing more than 40 novels, as well as short stories. The Barsetshire Chronicles, which include Barchester Towers and Framley Parsonage, are regarded by many as his masterpieces.

Review:

"His books are my lifelong love. He wrote 47 in total and I must have read them all; some twice. As I'm old and forgetful, I can just pick them up and start again and just know that they're going to be wonderful. My favourite is The Warden. It's a fascinating tale about the church and Victorian manners." -- Pru Leith Sunday Telegraph "What a treat, if you like Austen, or Pym, or anyone who gives an account of petty relationships in a Deanery Close or other small community. Why did Freud bother? This is so much better, and truer" Daily Telegraph "An affecting and delicate short novel" Guardian "His characters are real, truthfully felt and never patronised by their creator" Daily Mail
