Summary

Summary

Doctor Thorne, the third novel in Anthony Trollope’s Chronicles of Barsetshire, steers away from the church politics featured in the first two novels and move towards the scandals and prejudice of the upper tiers of Victorian era aristocracies. Frank Gresham, only son of a bankrupt landowner, falls in love with the impoverished and illegitimate Mary Thorne. His aristocratic mother forbids the match, steering him to other, richer, prospects. Only Dr. Thorne, Mary’s loving uncle, knows the truth of her impending inheritance.

Author Bio: Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) grew up in London. He inherited his mother’s ambition to write and was famously disciplined in the development of his craft. His first novel was published in 1847 while he was working in Ireland as a surveyor for the General Post Office. He wrote a series of books set in the English countryside as well as those set in the political life, works that show great psychological penetration. One of his greatest strengths was his ability to re-create in his fiction his own vision of the social structures of Victorian England. The author of forty-seven novels, he was one of the most prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era.
