The Penguin English Library Edition of Doctor Thorne by Anthony Trollope

'You must give up this mad idea, Frank ... there is but one course left open to you. You MUST marry money'

Doctor Thorne, considered by Trollope to be the best of his works, is a telling examination of the relationship between money and morality. It recounts the story of the son of a bankrupt landowner, Frank Gresham, who is intent on marrying his beloved Mary Thorne despite her illegitimacy and apparent poverty. Frank's ambitious mother and haughty aunt are set against the match, however, and push him to make a good marriage to a wealthy heiress. Only Mary's loving uncle, Dr Thorne, knows of the fortune she is about to inherit - but believes she should be accepted on her own terms.

The third book in the Chronicles of Barsetshire.

About the Author:

Anthony Trollope (1815-82) was one of the most widely enjoyed and prolific novelists of the nineteenth century. His books include the great Chronicles of Barsetshire, of which Dr Thorne is the third volume. Trollope worked for the Post Office for much of his adult life, combining postal and literary business as he travelled around the British Empire. He has been credited with the creation of the distinctive British pillar box.

The other five titles in the Chronicles of Barsetshire are The Warden, Barchester Towers, Framley Parsonage, The Small House at Allington and The Last Chronicle of Barset, all of which are published in the Penguin English Library.
