Book Excerpt: 
. . .In the days of the famine Father Marty and the Earl and the Protestant vicar had worked together in the good cause;—but those days were now gone by, and the strange intimacy had soon died away. The Earl when he met the priest would bow to him, and the two clergymen would bow to each other;—but beyond such dumb salutation there was no intercourse between them. It had been held therefore to be impossible to take any notice of the priest's friends.

And what notice could have been taken of two ladies who came from nobody knew where, to live in that wild out-of-the-way place, nobody knew why? They called themselves mother and daughter, and they called themselves O'Haras;—but there was no evidence of the truth even of these assertions. They were left therefore in their solitude, and never saw the face of a friend across their door step except that of Father Marty.

Siempre me dan miedo los clásicos, pero me animé con este al ser tan cortito pensando que tan grave no iba a ser si no me gustaba.
Es el primer libro que leo de Trollope y...¡me ha encantado!
Qué culebrón más adictivo y qué bien lo he pasado leyendo la historia de Neville y sus quebraderos de cabeza

Well, that was fantastic. A very striking, powerful Anthony Trollope.

Wow, this was such a powerful novella in the vein of Tess of the D’Urbervilles. This is also the most tragic novel I have read of Trollope’s with The Prime Minister in second place.

La de veces que he querido leer a Trollope pero me daba pánico pensando que era un escritor denso y enrevesado. Qué de libros fascinantes se dejan de leer por pensar ...

Os diré que me ha encantado Trollope.
Si os gusta la época victoriana ya lo conoceréis y si no lo conocéis leer este libro y disfrut

Una novela de esas que consigue que los lectores nos posicionemos en todo momento, que cambiemos de opinión según avanza la trama y conocemos más a los personajes. Que engancha. Mucho. Y que sorprende. Mucho.

Si queréis iniciaros con un clásico pero de normal os dan algo de pereza por su extensión, c

Me ha encantado. Es una lectura sencilla y muy entretenida en la que Trollope nos muestra las diferencias tan acusadas que existían entre católicos y protestantes tanto a nivel religioso como a nivel social.
El protagonista está en la tesitura de avanzar y dejar atrás todas esas antiguas tradiciones

Another great novel by Anthony Trollope! I found it engaging, disturbing, and moving. It is about marriage, family, family reputation, gender, decision-making, actions and consequences, love, and duty. I highly recommend it!
