Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882).
Framley Parsonage is the fourth novel in Anthony Trollope's series known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire. It was first published in serial form in the Cornhill Magazine in 1860, then in book form in 1861.The hero of Framley Parsonage, Mark Robarts, is a young vicar, settled in the village of Framley in Barsetshire with his wife and children. The living has come into his hands through Lady Lufton, the mother of his childhood friend Ludovic, Lord Lufton. Mark has ambitions to further his career and begins to seek connections in the county's high society. He is soon preyed upon by local Whig Member of Parliament Mr Sowerby to guarantee a substantial loan, which Mark in a moment of weakness agrees to do, even though he does not have the means and knows Sowerby to be a notorious debtor. The consequences of this blunder play a major role in the plot,

Another plot line deals with the romance between Mark's sister Lucy and Lord Lufton. The couple are deeply in love and the young man proposes, but Lady Lufton is against the marriage. She would prefer that her son instead choose the coldly beautiful Griselda Grantly, daughter of Archdeacon Grantly, and fears that Lucy is too "insignificant" for such a high position. Lucy herself recognises the great gulf between their social positions and declines the proposal. When Lord Lufton persists, she agrees only on condition that Lady Lufton ask her to accept her son.
The book ends with four marriages. Two of these involve the daughters of Bishop Proudie and Archdeacon Grantly. The rivalry between Mrs Proudie and Mrs Grantly over their matrimonial ambitions forms a significant comic subplot. The other marriage involves Doctor Thorne, the eponymous hero of the preceding novel in the series. A number of the other characters appear in other novels within the Chronicles of Barsetshire series. ( extracted from Wikipedia entry (spoilers removed))

Thank you very much.

Elizabeth Gaskell is quoted as saying "I wish Mr. Trollope would go on writing Framley Parsonage for ever. I don't see any reason why it should ever come to an end, and everyone I know is always dreading the last number." We shall see!

Best wishes

Nick

I remember thinking that same thing about the Little House at Allington -- that I never wanted it t end.

(Actually....I'm just replying to make sure I'm subscribed to this topic.)

Hi

Here. at last, is Chapter 1. Sorry it has taken so long


https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/framleyparsonage_01_trollope_128kb.mp3

24:49.7

I doubt I shall be able to get another chapter ready for a good three weeks as we are going cruising in the Baltic, leaving Friday - although I hope at least to record chapter 2 before we leave.

It has been a somewhat frenetic if lovely few weeks, culminating in Chris and Amy's wedding on the 25th June - a wonderful day.

All the best

Nick

Hope you have a wonderful time on your cruise!

When you get back, you might want to make a change to chapter 1. At 11:53, "quite enough" is repeated in the text, but only appears once in the audio recording. That's not the kind of precision many readers aim for, but from past experience, I think you do.

Hi

Just got back home after a lovely holiday.

I have corrected it - I had recorded it originally but must have assumed it was a duplication on editing.

Hope it's ok now

Aha! The site is finally back up. Chapter 1 and 2 are now marked PL OK. Trollope found his witty stride in this one early. I'm laughing already.

Hope you enjoyed your trip! I'm off to Tucson to celebrate my daughter's graduation and new job. Be back Tuesday.

That sounds fabulous. What has she graduated in? And what is her new job?

I hope you had a wonderful time.

Here is Chapter 3 - Trollope being very sardonic!
