Framley Parsonage (Barsetshire Chronicles vol. 4) - Folio
Trollope, Anthony (intro. Antonia Fraser, illus Alexy Pendle)
Beautiful Folio edition of Book 4 of Anthony Trollope’s popular “Chronicles of Barsetshire” series. In an attempt to make connections with high society, young vicar Mark Robarts foolishly guarantees a loan to the corrupt MP, Nate Sowerby. With Mr Sowerby not repaying the loan, MarkÕs friend Lord Lufton eventually steps in and saves his friend from financial disaster. All the while, MarkÕs sister Lucy moves to Framley and falls in love with Lord Lufton. However, Lucy rejects Lord LuftonÕs proposal, knowing that his mother, Lady Lufton, refuses to accept women of her status. Lady Lufton is adamant her son marry Griselda Grantly, daughter of the Archdeacon. However in the end, Lady Lufton abandons her pretentious desires, and asks Lucy to accept her sonÕs proposal, particularly after witnessing Lucy selflessly care for Mrs Crawley. Meanwhile, Mrs Proudie reappears and reignites a feud with the Archdeacon and his wife, Mrs Grantly. Another subplot features the marriage of Doctor Thorne and the wealthy Mrs Dunstable, who was initially the choice of Frank GreshamÕs family.
