Written in 1878, this novel was inspired by one of the scandals of the 1870s, concerning a pretender to the Tichborne baronetcy. The real heroine of this novel is Mary Germain, vivacious, naive and rebellious in her marriage to Lord George Germain, a true and truly autocratic English gentleman.

Anthony Trollope (24 April 1815 – 6 December 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Among his best-loved works is a series of novels collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, which revolves around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters. Trollope's literary reputation dipped somewhat during the last years of his life, but he regained the esteem of critics by the mid-twentieth century.
